The social media giant ‘Facebook’ in a recent report has admitted that up to 270 million accounts on the platform are either fake or duplicate.

According to Facebook, around two-to-three per cent of its total 2.1 billion monthly users in the third quarter of 2017 were "user-misclassified and undesirable accounts.

In yet another shocking news, another 10 per cent of its accounts are duplicates of real users, almost doubling its estimate of six per cent from last quarter`s results, suggesting that in total, up to 13 per cent of its 2.1 billion monthly users (almost 270 million accounts) are "illegitimate".

More than two-to-three per cent of its 2.1 billion monthly Facebook users in the third quarter of 2017 were "user-misclassified and undesirable accounts", Facebook said, adding the number increased from the previous one per cent that it had estimated in July.
