Facebook’s hard times were the perfect basis to start purging fake accounts and likes.

The exact numbers are anyone’s guess at the moment, but apparently, many pages lost many a fan in a single day.

Facebook metrics service PageData sayas Zynga’s Texas HoldEm lost 96,000 likes on Wednesday. Farmville did slightly better with 45,000 likes down the drain.
