image for Farcebook furor as 87% of users branded 'bogus' - report
The brains behind Fakebook's marketing strategy

Cyberspace - Trolls, grudge peddlers and cyber bottom-feeders chucked out from rival sites make up the numbers according to a report published today.

Analysis of the social netjerking site's 666 million users shows 87% are 'fakes' created ahead of Farcebook's recent public flirtation - er...flotation! - valuing the company at $$$ billions.

Photos, videos and online rants are mostly generated by a computer program sourced to a mysterious cult headquartered aboard an ocean trawling ship.

Persistent rumors have always reckoned the organization operates from a converted oil tanker - the souped-up former disaster-hit Exxon-Valdez.

Apparently it circles the globe under a flag of convenience, churning out verbiage from the site's myriad duplicate accounts.

Today's data has angered institutional investors who piled in to support the site's hugely hyped market launch.

"We resent being ripped off by this relatively recent newby to the cyber stock market's traditional domain," a Lemon Brothers/Northern Crock Bank [Cayman Islands] source whined today.

Shares in the Farcebook site have plunged 69%.
