Facebook doubles up account numbers, Super Mario Odyssey sells like crazyToday's major tech headlines include Facebook's release of duplicate account statistics, the HTC11's hardware step-up and Super Mario Odyssey's impressive first week of sales.
This is CNet and here are the stories that matter right now. Fresh off giving testimony on Capitol Hill, Facebook has released information regarding fake and duplicate accounts on its network. The company now estimates that roughly 10% of the accounts on Facebook are duplicates and around 3% are fake. Here's for a bit of perspective, 10% of Facebook equates to around 207 million user accounts. HTC has debuted the U11 Plus, a step up from the standard U11. It boasts a larger display, a fingerprint scanner in a new place, and all in all a mostly refined version of the original. Fortunately there are no current plans to bring the U-11 Plus statewide though preorders will start in the UK on November 20th. And finally Nintendo says that Super Mario Odyssey has sold 1.1 million copies since it's launch last week, making it the best selling release in the game's entire history. Special bundle for Black Friday, that includes the switch console and the game, will go for $380.
