Dumping Facebook: Why More People Are Leaving

"....If you've noticed friends spending less time on Facebook or leaving the social network entirely, they are a sign of a larger trend. Yesterday, a Capstone Investment report found that the number of Facebook users has declined over the past six months. As a result, Facebook shares decreased 0.6 percent to $28.09.

Also from the report: U.S. users decreased 1.1 percent over the past six months while 14 of 23 countries in which Facebook has at least 50 percent market penetration saw little growth or even a decline over the past three months.

Facebook users, it appears, are slowly losing interest in the social network....."

This gives me some hope that the collective population of the world is not as stupid as I was starting think.

Once the initial wave of enthusiasm subsides, i'm sure FB will settle to a level which is more appropriate.

As new social media sites come on stream that distracts attention to the next big thing.

I don't think we can just single out FB as it's the whole social media space which is the goldrush, and mature markets may be settling into a trend.

I worked for a firm that used Facebook to find staff members that they wanted to fire, using (surprise, surprise) misconduct. So no surprise that people are not using it so much.

I think it's going to take a very long time for the facebook craze to subside..
Sadly,people cant help wanting to know about other people's lives. ALL THE TIME.

Regarding companies, I think LinkedIn should be they're first choice.

Exactly!

I dumped it 2 months ago. I got tired of food pictures, pet pictures, and people complaining. Wow... I actually have time now to spend with my family and less stress from reading about everybody's problems!

Yes I think traffic is very important.

In that it shows which sites are more popular than others.

If you don't like Alexa, you will find that Quantcast and Compete's figures are similar to Alexa's.
