Facebook Traffic from US and Canada Shows Decline


Although Facebook is still growing towards 700 million users, having reached 687 million monthly actives by the start of June, ( source  Inside Facebook Gold data service.) However .beyond the overall increase in  numbers, Facebook's traffic across certain key markets have been decling .Facebook lost 6 million users in the U.S. last month, dropping from 155.2 million to 149.4 million. That's the first time U.S. numbers have dropped in more than a year.

It also lost 1.52 million users in Canada, dropping to 16.6 million -- that's an 8% drop --  and 100,000 each in the U.K., Norway, and Russia.Total Facebook users were still up 1.7% thanks to growth in countries where the service got popular later, like Mexico and Brazil.

Most of the new users continue to come from countries that are relatively late in adopting Facebook, as has been the trend for the past year.

But overall growth has been lower than normal for the second month straight, which is unusual.
The company gained 11.8 million more people over May, following 13.9 million over April. In contrast, it grew by at least 20 million new users over the typical month in the past 12; while there have been a few months that have registered lower growth numbers, they have not been back to back.

 Analyzing this drop in numbers , Inside facebook  writes" 
Till Facebook reaches around 50% of the total population in a given country (plus or minus, depending on internet access rates in that country), growth generally slows to a halt, as we’ve noted before. So far, Facebook has been able to make up stalls and losses with big gains in heavily-populated developing countries like Mexico, Brazil, India and Indonesia. As you can see in the table above of the ten countries that gained the most users over May, this continues to be the case.

56% of World Wide Web Content shared Via

More than half of all content shared on the web occurs via Facebook.

ShareThis arrived at this statistic in a study conducted with StarCom MediaVest Group and Rubicom Partners, and first reported by TechCrunch.

Facebook clearly dominates in the sharing category, accounting for 38 percent of all sharing referral traffic (the next closest are email and Twitter, tied at 17 percent each.)  And that’s just the percent of folks who click through.
When examining the raw numbers (links shared but not clicked on), the figure is even higher. In that case, Facebook accounts for a whopping 56 percent of all shared content on the Web, up 11 points from August, 2010.
The study also shows that Facebook links are clicked on an average of 4.3 times, versus Twitter at 4.9 times and email, where links are clicked on an average of 1.7 times.
The study looked at the sharing and clicking habits of the more than 300 million people a month who pass links with a ShareThis button on over a million websites, producing 7 billion pageviews a month

Indonesia Facebook Users Infographic

There’s one country that stands head and shoulders above the rest: Indonesia, which added a whopping 2.4 million new monthly active users in May to become Facebook’s third-largest country with 22.4 million MAU overall.Indonesian Facebook users grew more than 1,500 percent in 2009.

According to InsideFacebook statistics Indonesia actually had a shot at becoming number two, but was foiled by the United Kingdom’s strong growth in May. But the UK is at 44.4 percent penetration; few countries ever pass 50 percent. Indonesia, by contrast, is still only at 10.8 percent penetration.That should happen despite the relatively low penetration of Facebook among older inhabitants; past the age of 34 very few Indonesians have signed up for the social network, and it has one of the largest 18-25 age groups we’ve seen.
