---- Facebook Still Growing But Losing Users In Countries It Was First Established
- 4:39 pm on Jun 13, 2011
Facebook lost 6 million users in the U.S. last month, dropping from 155.2 million to 149.4 million
users? That's about half the total US population.
Those kind of numbers lack any credibility.
If they were talking about "accounts" vs "users", maybe, but
149.4 MILLION USA USERS
, I don't think so.
A couple numbers from the
2000 US Census
• 72.3 million, or 26 percent of the U.S. population, were under age 18;
• 174.1 million, or 62 percent, were age 18 to 64; and
• 35.0 million, or 12 percent, were age 65 and over.
Looking at the linked census page it looks like about 40 million Americans are under 10. I wonder how many of them have Facebook accounts.
