Some of your Facebook friends may not exist.

The popular social networking site estimates there are more than 83 million fake users on Facebook.

Duplicate profiles make up nearly five-percent of memberships.

Two-percent are profiles created for businesses or pets.

And about one-and-a-half percent are classified as undesirable accounts, or profiles created by spammers.
