Facebook brags that it’s about to top 700 million members worldwide, but it appears that many people are starting to lose interest. US membership dropped by six million in May alone. The rise in membership seems due mostly to new markets like Mexico and India, and soon, China. One expert said Facebook use tends to grow quickly until it reaches about half the population, then it slows to a crawl or drops.
- It’s huge in Mexico because if you don’t “Like” the heads of the drug cartels, they’ll kill you.
- Mark Zuckerberg better sell his stock soon before he goes broke!
- I had no idea Facebook was available in India! Now I can finally “friend” the guy who spends hours helping me fix my computer!
