Most ‘Women’ on Ashley Madison Were Actually Fake

Curated by

 

When examining the data, Newitz found that about 10,000 accounts were linked to email addresses ending in ashleymadison.com, indicating that the site’s admins had actually created them. According to an analysis of the Ashley Madison data dump from Gizmodo , just about 12,000 of the 5.5 million female profiles on the now-infamous adultery site belonged to actual, living breathing women. There’s a good chance that most men on Ashley Madison never even had the opportunity to cheat.

 

 

  • That’s because most women on the site were actually fake.
  • Moreover, Newitz found that about two-thirds of men on the site — or 20.2 million of them — had checked their messages at least once.
  • Just 1,492 women ever did.
