Okay .. here's a fun exercise (granted, as a .edu, the FB stats are
statistically over-represented) .. this is yesterday.

total email : 1,594,435
from @*facebook* : 17,274 (1.1%)

Taken as a total of *legitimate* email that got through the spam filter ..

"legit" email : 79,072
from @*facebook* : 16,383 (20.7%)

Facebook's "notifications" account for ~21% of the mail making it past
the border SPAM appliances.
