FaceBook is loosing customers in U.S., Canada and other countries

FaceBook is loosing users in countries it was first established.
For the month of May: - 6 mil. users in U.S. (from 155.2 mil. to 149.4 mil.), - 1.52 mil. users in Canada (to 16.6 mil.), - 100.000 users each in U.K., Norway, and Russia.
Overall, the total number of FaceBook users increased by 1.7% driven by growth in other countries (Brazil, Mexico, etc).
The reasons are multiple:
- too much noise on the network
- privacy issues and concerns
- constant bombardment with unsolicited material
- aggressive way of introducing new features
