    EXACTLY !! i bet they are just saying this cuz they have no idea how many are really out there , it would be very hard to determine how they are fake or bots...

    Hmm, that's not going to improve their stock any! Especially with the news of heavy bot click abuse, and advertisers running away!

    They also paid $1 Billion... for an image editing app..... I don't think they know what money is anymore.

    I always knew this was going to backfire on Facebook. Every time I would hear a news story boasting how many registered users they had I would always roll my eyes thinking "Yeah, how many of those are fake accounts?".

    I'm sure their executives knew of the problem with having so many bot accounts, but probably saw the high number of registered users as positive publicity. They were too arrogant by not anticipating that someone would be innovative enough to see through their fake numbers and put them on blast(Limited Run).

    If they confirmed 83 million and knowing they have to be careful because of shareholders etc that number will actually be a ton higher, 3 times in my opinion probably more :p

    I know what it's called, lol, but that's basically what it does right? I don't think it needs to be glorified! :p

    And anyway it's "Instagram" :p :p :p
