VTV.vn - Facebook announced on Friday that 2.2 billion fake accounts was taken down between January and March, a record high for the company.

That number is only slightly less than the 2.38 billion monthly active users Facebook has around the world. Facebook said the rise in the number of deleted fake accounts was because some users were using automated methods to create large numbers of them. But a majority of them are spotted and deleted within minutes, before they had any opportunity to cause harm. Overall, about 5% of the monthly active users on Facebook were fake accounts.
