Facebook loses 1.4million UK visitors in a MONTH

The number of people using Facebook is plummeting, with 1.4 million British users logging off in just one month.

Despite being the world’s largest social network with more than a billion users, people in Facebook’s biggest markets are deleting their accounts.

In the last month there has been a 4.5 per cent fall in British users, according to independent data.

In the last six months, Facebook has lost nearly 9 million monthly visitors in the US and 2 million in the UK.

Experts say as new social media sites grow, Facebook’s users are deserting the network.

They say that figures aren’t helped by the lack of new Facebook members. It is believed that most people who want to sign up to the site have already done so.

New media specialist Ian Maude said the fall in numbers was due to “a boredom factor”. …

Boredom is one reason. I never liked the logo. Who wants to log in to an F? It should be called Acebook, because then the logo would be an A and that’s way better than an F, don’t you think? This kind of rambling is another reason people don’t read Facebook.

But did you know that http://acebook.com actually works? It just redirects you to Facebook.com, meaning Facebook already owns Acebook. They could easily go with Acebook and rebrand it as something cool, something smarter, something next generation, not an ancient bloated behemoth.

    Seems no one likes the changes FB is making. Remember Friendster, MySpace… Social Network life cycle: grow – explode – collapse
    IMO – Faecbook is due for a major collapse and I think it will be legendary!
    My questions, What is the next big social network? Where does Twitter fall?

      The hope is that people will realize that social networks are destroying personal interactions and making people too distracted to even carry on a conversation. Of course it will likely just get worse and I will continue to dream of a world where people don’t have to text at every moment of the day 🙂
