    Personally, I find the Pareto Principle applies well to my use of social media, with 80% of my time devoted to Twitter and 20% to Facebook. I have grave concerns about privacy on FB, and often think about cancelling my account there, but I have been holding off for some time. I’m just not convinced that FB is a useful as Twitter.

    BTW I also jumped on the MySpace bandwagon several years ago, and *never* use that site anymore. Would love to see you write about the demise of MySpace one day.

    I wrote a blog post recently about this (http://joshmilenthal.com/2011/06/facebook-lost-users-in-may-and-its-a-good-thing/).

    In the end I think that its a good thing. While the numbers may be accurate only to a certain degree, its a fact the you cant keep growing forever in saturated markets. Facebook is bound to lose users in countries that have such high percentages of market penetration, like the US, UK, and Canada. The users it is losing though? They are people who arent making them money anyways because they most likely don’t use the site all that often. While overall numbers may, or may not, have decreased I think weeding out users with little worth to the company isn’t a bad thing or a sign of decline.

    I don’t think these numbers reflect mobile touchpoints through apps…is that correct? @dock29
