There are Users, and Then There are Users

John C. Dvorak makes an interesting point on a recent DH Unplugged. While Facebook claimed 845 million users just before its IPO filing, recent info coming out as the social media giant modifies its S1 imply there may "only" be 150 million active users. Why the large discrepancy? Dormant accounts, duplicate accounts and "like farms" -- fake accounts created to only inflate views that can be purchased by the unscrupulous.
