Another factor in dropped accounts may be the loss of "coolness" it had when it was primarily teens and college students -- many of them DON'T want to see their parents or other 40-50+ year old relatives on FB -- or more likely don't want those relatives to see aspects of their private lives they divulge to "friends" on FB.
You hit the nail on the head. That's precisely why i no longer regularly use it. As soon as my parents and grand parents joined, i knew facebook was dead.
I still have an account just so can reconnect and have a contact with some old friends.
