    Independent Data Says Facebook is Losing Millions of Users, Let’s Talk About Why

    Has Facebook peaked? New data from independent analysis firm SocialBakers seems to suggest that might be the case. According to SocialBakers, Facebook's usership is down by six million people in the U.S. from where they were a month ago. Numbers are down in other key markets like the U.K. as well.

    Gmail Finally Overthrows Hotmail, Now World’s Largest Email Provider

    Though it might be a surprise to some, Gmail hasn't always been the juggernaut it currently is. In fact, the email service wasn't even the largest email provider in the world until very recently. Though the search engine giant had claimed the title for itself this past summer, third-party data didn't back up the company's assertion until just now. comScore's set of email data for October shows Gmail finally toppling the reign of Hotmail.

    The U.S. Isn’t Into Social Networking as Much as You’d Think, and Females are Into It More Than Males

    A recent report released by comScore has revealed that the United States isn't into social networking as much you might think. Yes, even though whenever you walk by a coworker's computer you can spy Facebook opened in a tab, or anytime you go into a heavily populated area, it seems everyone is tweeting or Instagramming or Facebooking on their phone. Though social networking is the most popular online activity in the world, and accounts for 1 in 5 minutes spent online, and reaches 82% of the world's Internet population, somehow, the U.S. doesn't care as much as your eyes and these stats would have you believe.
