BuzzFeed points to a continuing theme in tech: Consumers are moving away from Meta’s Facebook.
“At this point in the quarter, we continue to see audiences spending less time on Facebook,” BuzzFeed CFO Felicia DellaFortuna said in her remarks.
It comes after Meta reported Facebook daily active users were down slightly this past quarter at 1.93 billion, marking its first-ever quarterly decline. The decline of about 500,000 could mean that Facebook has saturated its product globally and the ability to add loads of users has peaked.
