After growing by 7.8 million new active U.S. users in May, Facebook growth stagnated in June, adding only 320,800 new users.
Total number of active U.S. users now stands at 125,000,000.
According to Inside Facebook Gold, which offers Facebook data and analysis, it is not unusual to see a saturated country like the U.S. take a breather after a growth spurt.
Slightly less users in the 18-44 demo – which represents Facebook’s largest age demographic – were active on Facebook in June, compared to May. While the loss in that demo could be just a blip, it could also be the result of backlash from heavy media attention to Facebook’s privacy issues – some of which were real and others, Inside Facebook claims, the result of confusion and sensationalism.
The ages that logged the losses in June were those most likely to have listened to the privacy debates.
