Facebook’s Bad Quarter

Apparently, Facebook lost over 1 million users in North America last quarter:

That drop led to an overall decrease in daily users of Facebook globally, which a company spokesperson confirmed is the first sequential decline in the company’s history.

I take a small amount of savage pride knowing that I helped with at least a few of them. When I worked at an Apple Store, one of my customers was an elderly lady who had somehow made herself at least five different Facebook accounts. I guess whenever she was prompted to log in, she just made a new account. She asked me to help her to consolidate them down to one, and delete the rest. It was my pleasure!

The Verges piece, written by Alex Heath, offers more insight, and Facebook’s woes are a regular topic on their excellent The Vergecast podcast.
