Palo Alto, Calif. – Facebook’s progress towards reaching a goal of 1 billion monthly active users is slowing, as the number of users in both the United States and Canada have dropped in recent months,
Inside Facebook reports.

The report finds that Facebook lost 6 million users in the U.S. in May, now counting 155.2 million, while the number of users in Canada fell 1.52 million, from 16.6 million. Nearing 700 million users,
Facebook reached their current 687 million at the start of June.

Although there has been a decrease from May to June, Inside Facebook noted their continual watch to see what long-term trends emerge, and what effects play a role in the increase and decrease of monthly
active users.
