Google’s Doodle for Olympics

I saw this last day, but didn’t give much thought to what happens after pressing the red-button etc etc. Few hours ago, one of my friend on Facebook posted this image and wrote that it is addictive and fun. That is when I came to know that this is a game.

Upon opening my browser today, I found this.

It also is great, try it out. It’s now on Google’s homepage.

For those who didn’t try out yesterdays Google’s Doodle (like me). It’s still accessible, try it out here.   

83 million (8.7%) Facebook accounts are fake.

Are you surprised?

I’m not! I think everyone on Facebook at one point or another created a fake account. I expected a much larger figure.

Out of all these 8.7% Fakes.

4.8% are duplicates, which means
an account which a user maintains in
addition to his/her duplicate account.

2.4% are user-misclassified, that is users who have created personal profiles for a business, organisation, or non-human entity such as a pet.

And 1.5% Undesirable, i.e account with fake names used for spamming which violates Facebook’s terms and uses. (All the statistics are taken from Mashable)

And among these 83 million, I contributed almost 7-8 accounts and none them are active now. No! not banned by Facebook but where deactivated over time.

So, did you contribute in this 83 million? 😉
