Is Facebook Going Out of Style?

Is Facebook hitting its saturation point in the U.S. and other early adopter countries? Yes, according to a new report by by Inside Facebook. The report shows that while Facebook is still growing, that growth is happening predominantly in developing countries. In the most developed countries, that were early adopters of Facebook, growth is slowing. In fact, the report shows that Facebook lost approximately 6 million users in May.

However, in an article released by DNA, Facebook denies the accuracy of the report. Facebook is quoted as saying that, ” it had seen a 21 per cent growth for U.S. users during May.”

Ultimately, whether or not Facebook goes the way of the dodo bird, what matters to businesses and customers alike is that social media is here to stay. It is important to make use of all social media that is available to you by having a comprehensive social media strategy as part of your overall marketing efforts.
