The numbers of Facebook users reached by the end of 2014 1.4 billion, while it is predicted that these numbers will keep increasing during 2016. In the Middle Eastern world, studies from the University of Qatar showed that people using social networks like Facebook and Twitter has decreased by 5% since 2012 because of other applications like What’s App.

Also, studies have shown the half of the internet users around the world use it to access Facebook only.

Facebook is considered one of the social networks that links the whole world together, and it has become a place for business development – from stores, small businesses, and all the way to big corporations – to increase customers. It is expected that this will grow in the next years. Facebook is still unable to specify the actual amount of fake account, even though they are trying to control these accounts by the ‘report’ option. Some estimates the number of fake accounts to be around 100 million.
