Facebook dismisses claims that people are losing interest

Written by Nick Farell
facebook

Just Europeans and the US, and perhaps Australia
Social notworking site Facebook has denied claims that the world+dog is abandoning the site and found something better to do with their lives.

Yesterday it was revealed by Inside Facebook's own metrics tool that numbers of members in developing nations like the United States, as well as more civilised countries such as the UK were dropping. If it was not for the fact that countries which are starting to get computers were signing up, then numbers would be shrinking even more.

Facebook said that from time to time, we see stories about Facebook losing users in some regions. Some of the reports use data extracted from their advertising tool, which provides broad estimates on the reach of Facebook ads and isn't designed to be a source for tracking the overall growth of Facebook.

It said that it was very pleased with its growth and with the way people are engaged with Facebook. More than half of their active users log on to Facebook in any given day.

About time that people realize it is just a time waster hopefully before Facebook goes onto the stock market

I`m a 40 y.o. IT male, and I know very few other men who use facebook other than on the rare occassion. On the other hand, 90% of the women I know use it as a gossip/vanity/peer-conformity tool.

I only use it once in a while to check on friends. The privacy settings sucks. And it's all good until someone writes on your wall "How did that job interview go?" while you stil have your old job, or something to that effect.

I only ever use FB to stay in touch with distant family friends. And to post YT videos.
My mom and sister's however spend all of there evening on FB playing those gay a** flash games.

Why does everybody think that it's good that facebook falls? All it means is that it will be replaced by others, and will probably fragment the world and what they choose to use. I like to think of facebook as the 'windows' of social networks. I don't like the amount of praise Zuckerberg gets, it's not as if he's done anything other than create the most SUCCESSFUL one. But now it's here, why not make the most of it? I'm afraid that those of you who think that social networking is just going to disappear are beginning to sound like those people who thought the internet would never take off. It's here to stay, why not just benefit from it? (Some examples in the post above this one)

If it keeps it up, developing into a bigger darts board, yes.
