The Facebook growth is shrinking

Facebook sees traffic drop in the US and Canada as it reaches 700 million users.
This is the first time in the history of Facebook that the growth is shrinking.
In may this year there were only 11.8 million new subscribers when in previous years that number was closer to 20 million.
In the US the total subscribers dropped with 6 million to a (still) 194.4 million users.
The reason for this is probably that Facebook is working on a cleanup by deleting account that aren't being used for a long time. Besides that personal profiles that are being used by company's are being deleted.

Facebook now has approximately 687 million users. According to InsideFacebook it's just a matter of weeks until 
they reach the 700 million border.
