Jason Mander, Head of Trend and Writer Reports GWI said “This is Facebook new challenge on the social media business”
The cause of the decline of Facebook users in several countries is due to various forms of reasons. However, based on a survey conducted in the UK and the US, nearly 50 percent of users are bored with Facebook.
Jason Mander explains: “From the beginning of 2103. It has seen a decrease of 20 percent for the activities of sharing photos and exchanging messages on Facebook”
But Facebook globally remains a largest social networking site. Because when we see the number of Internet users that has reached 3 billion people, and the users of Facebook is around 1.36 billion, this shows that the third of the world’s Internet users are Facebook users.
