600,000 Facebook Accounts Are Hijacked Every Day

By Andrew Tarantola on at

If your Facebook account is compromised and FB staff is less than prompt with addressing your issue, don't fret. It isn't because they don't like you, it's because there are 599,000 other people with your same predicament—and that's just today.

Buried deeply in their Trusted Friends program announcement, Facebook let slide that a staggering 600,000 user accounts are compromised daily—a whopping 18 million every month—hence the new program. These numbers were garnered from FB's report that 0.06% of 1 billion logins per day are not done by the actual account holder. [Mashable]
