Facebook has as termed “unequivocally false” a report that claims the social networking platform hosts one billion fake accounts, a media report said.

“Its official metrics — many of which it has stopped reporting quarterly — are self-contradictory and even farcical”, said Aaron Greenspan, who attended Harvard University with Zuckerberg from 2002 to 2004
