Facebook (Kinda) Disputes Slowdown Estimates, But Declines to Give Actual Stats – AllThingsD

Facebook’s rebuttal:

Facebook is in the news today because of estimates that its growth is slowing, driven by losses in some of its largest and oldest markets. The company wimped out on actually disputing the reported numbers, but called them into question with a statement we just received:

From time to time, we see stories about Facebook losing users in some regions. Some of these reports use data extracted from our advertising tool, which provides broad estimates on the reach of Facebook ads and isn’t designed to be a source for tracking the overall growth of Facebook. We are very pleased with our growth and with the way people are engaged with Facebook. More than 50% of our active users log on to Facebook on any given day.”
