Active Facebook Users In SA Drop By A Million

The number of people logging onto Facebook in South Africa has dropped by close to one million.

Statistics from social media monitoring company SocialBakers showed that 967 220 users – a drop of 17.7% – have not logged on to the site in the past six months, reported The Star.

While Facebook has generally reported growth consistently over the last couple of years, it would seem that people are getting a bit tired with the social networking site, at least in SA. It now has over a billion users worldwide effectively making it the third largest ‘country’ in the world.

The interesting question is, where are those people going to if they are ditching Facebook?

Are you getting a bit tired with Facebook as well?
