    What is the Facebook definition of an active account? They say 30 days but I bet that is suspect as well since they count viewing a post as being active.

    fake accounts, duplicate accounts (including all those shoe spammers), roadblocked accounts.. probably 1/3 or more of total facebook accounts aren't real or usable
