Facebook frequently claims about its billions of users, however, this isn’t entirely accurate when all factors are taken into account. Facebook is referring to the fact that it has billions of registered accounts on its site, but how many of those accounts are genuine and how many are false profiles is anyone’s guess, given the shockingly high frequency with which people attempt to create multiple accounts.
According to a presentation given internally by the corporation, the number of fraudulent profiles or users with numerous profiles may be more than previously thought. This is based on a review of 5,000 newly created accounts, which indicated that between 32 percent and 56 percent of them were made by users who already had a profile on the site and desired a separate one for a variety of reasons, including privacy and possibly malevolent motives.

With that out of the way, it’s crucial to note that this is a serious issue for Facebook because it’s the kind of thing that might make it tough for marketers to figure out how many unique impressions their ads received. Facebook has already cracked down on people who have numerous accounts, but the fact that the problem still exists suggests that earlier attempts were ineffective.
This issue is getting much worse these days, and Facebook needs to seek out a solution as soon as feasible. The social media platform is currently facing several challenges, and dealing with this on top of everything else is unlikely to make things much easier for it as time passes.

Meanwhile, Facebook has also failed to prevent hate speech and fake news on its platform. Leaked documents demonstrate that the business is selective in its suppression of hate speech, misinformation, and offensive posts particularly anti-Muslim content in India.
