Facebook shares fell to new lows Thursday, dropping four per cent to close at $20.04 US on the Nasdaq as the company revealed that as many as 83 million accounts on its social networking website might be false or duplicate user profiles.

Australian airline Qantas has denied claims it left a customer on hold … for 15 hours 40 minutes and one second.
The claims were made by a customer who has told Fairfax media and news.com.au that he called to confirm a flight and, upon hearing the usual canned messages about what a valued and deeply-loved customer he is, decided to put that statement to the test. He then tested it to the limit, fearing he’d lose his place in the queue.
The customer, one Andrew Kahn, has produced screen shots of his mobile phone to prove his marathon was real, and says the all-nighter started at seven in the evening and rolled through the night until he finally lost patience after 11:00 AM.
