Facebook: The purge has commenced

September 27, 2012

News

In the recent past Facebook found many fake users, accounts and likes. Last month Facebook announced it would start deleting these bogus items in the near future. That day has arrived with Facebook confirming yesterday that process has begun.

Tens of thousands of users were dropped from Facebook. Facebook metrics site PageData shows that Zynga’s Texas HoldEm Poker lost 96,000 fans yesterday, while Rihanna lost 22,198, and Michael Jackson lost 17,591.

Facebook stated last month the reason for the purge was to cut down on suspicious likes.
