Has Interest In Facebook Peaked?

Just a blip or the start of something bigger?

Facebook sees big drop in traffic

"overall growth has been lower than normal for the second month straight"

"This is the first time the country has lost users in the past year"

Facebook shares have recently fallen in the private marketplace, even after LinkedIn's wildly successful IPO.

What is Facebook losing traffic to? Another networking site or is this just a typical summer (outside enjoying the day not sitting at a desk all day) normalcy?

Have people become inundated with the posts from hundreds of their "friends" and tuned out? Facebook is really like an RSS feed of your friends.Have people started to unsubscribe?

I have noticed a slowdown in my friend's posts on my Facebook feed for several months. I would love to see a chart of average number of "friends" each user has, and per each age group/sex. I think that would be a better stat.

As you get older, you realize time is a very precious commodity. Maybe people are doing some "friend" spring cleaning.
