4 Things That Might Be the Reason Behind the Decrease in the Facebook User Base
February 04, 2022

For the first time in its history, Facebook lost nearly half-million users this quarter, The once-leading online community has seen its user base dramatically drop in numbers in this quarter. This article aims to analyze what specific factors may be leading to this decrease in user base.

1. Too much content

One of the reasons that Facebook's user base may have decreased is due to the platform being flooded with content. The reason they may not be using it is that they feel like they are drowning in information and don't feel like they're getting regular content updates.

2. Content Creators not getting organic reach

In recent years I have read from many digital marketers that we don't get organic reach from Facebook, I have realized the same. Content creators are the base of any social media platform, they get more engagement for good content.

The more good content the more users will come daily to the platform If content creators don't get organic reach or increase in the page likes or follows they look for another platform. Due to this reason, I am focusing on my Instagram pages to get a more organic reach to help millions of software developers.

3. Too many features

Less is more. To get more engagement from users software developers should focus on making things easier to use by providing the required features. In recent years Facebook has added a lot of features in the app like reels, video sharing with link share, and photo share features.

If we look at other platforms there are few features like only video sharing apps (TikTok) or photo-sharing apps (Instagram before reels). So they get more engagement from users.

In Facebook, Almost all type of content is accepted like text, links, audio, video, live video sharing. so users get more annoyed with a lot of content.

4. Too many ads

If we scroll on Facebook feed, Sometimes I get an ad after every 2 to 3 posts, which is very annoying. On its own platform Instagram we get the ads after an average of 5-6 posts.
