Facebook loses 6M U.S. users in May

News // Jun 13 2011

Computerworld - Facebook may continue to gain users, but the world’s biggest social network isn’t gaining them as quickly as it has been and is actually losing users in the U.S.

Facebook gained 11.8 million more users last month alone, according to a study by Inside Facebook. While that’s a lot of new users, it’s less than the 13.9 million new users who joined the site in April, or the 20 million gain during some months in the past year.

And while Inside Facebook reports that the social network is approaching 700 million users worldwide, the number of U.S. users has dropped. The study found that Facebook lost 6 million U.S. users in May.

The study noted that Facebook had 155.2 million U.S. users at the beginning of May but 149.4 million at the end of the month.

Other countries showed losses as well; Canada dropped by 1.52 million and the U.K. dropped by more than 100,000, but the U.S. showed the biggest loss for Facebook last month.

Bob Tuskin’s Take:

CIA Book, you continue to amaze me. Perhaps your users don’t like all of your privacy violations, including your most recent facial recognition addition.
In George Orwell’s infamous novel 1984, Big Brother could read your mind.
I used to think that this was far out and some sort of science fiction technology but with the popularity of Facebook it has become reality.
When people post their every thought on Facebook, the social networking giant becomes Big Brothers best friend.
Oh and by the way, I am on Facebook so feel free to add me.
If you do, you will not see me post about what I had for dinner or who my favorite contestant on dancing with the stars is.
Instead, you will see me posting solution oriented and informative intel, aka their worst nightmare.

    - Facebook is a remarkable service – For a year and a half I’ve enjoyed posting thousands of my images to share – Folks come and go and the quality of posts seems to have declined, yet you still can’t be the price – Thanks fb

    With you 110% Bob. Since its rise to fame I’d warned many a local individual to consider, reconsider, and then re-reconsider what they’re posting to online services such as Facebook (they’re not alone as you’re likely well aware of). It will fall much the same way MySpace’d did, much like Ning-a-Ling is, and the Twits that Tweet their morning breakfast habits.

    I don’t maintain a Spacebook profile, but my car does (plateless, of course).

    The Left bias is palpable with Facebook. No wonder people are jumping ship. Further, their constant tinkering has PO’d enough folks that it it’s starting to make a dent.

    A lot of people are realising the difficulties associated with Facebook.

    I made deletefacebook.com after my own annoyance with the deletion process.

    It’s about time I put some analytics on it, for curiosity’s sake, but to be honest I hope it just helps people with a quick link and basic info.

    I appreciate that moderated comments don’t like this sort of linked comment :) feel free to reject it… I just find it funny that a site I made through disapproving of how difficult FB makes it to delete an account properly is getting any attention at all.

    Thanks

    I have turned my back on FaceBook and have fallen in love with Twitter. It’s much more useful, I avoid high school friends, and I don’t feel like I’m selling my soul to a corporate giant. In all, I am glad FaceBook is losing users. Follow me @DanTheMan418
