Facebook users some are just not human

The title says it all, 10 percent of facebook users are not human. Even though facebook has a ridiculously amount of users, many accounts are not at all humans. eMarketer released an analysis of Facebook’s audience, well it turns out more than 10 percent of Facebook’s monthly users, are just not human- in fact over 100 million active Facebook users are pets, objects or brands.

Seriously? At the end of March, Facebook had announced that it has 1.11 billion monthly active users, but eMarketer found that only 889.3 million users were just not human. Facebook is aware of this of course, and knows that some of their estimates could be inaccurate. In a report filed to the Securities and Exchange Commission in June 2012, shortly after the company’s initial public offering, Facebook wrote:

We estimate that duplicate accounts, may have represented approximately 4.8 percent of our worldwide MAUs as of June 30, 2012.

eMarketer may be counting those numbers differently, or the number of fake accounts may have gone up in the past year.

In 2012, Facebook estimated that 1.5 percent of Facebook accounts are “undesirable” or spam accounts. A lot are just accounts for users’ pets. People have been making Facebook pages for animals for years. CNN wrote about the trend back in 2010, estimating that there were at least a few thousand profile pages for dogs and cats along with less common pets such as birds, hamsters, ferrets, turtles, fish and rabbits.

The Grumpy Cat for example has over 96 thousand likes on his Facebook page. The cartoon Nemo, has 1.7  million likes. And not to mention a lot of the pages out there that are promoting other products.

How does your pet use his or hers Facebook?
