Facebook Audience Growth Slows to 5%, ComScore Reports

Facebook Inc.’s audience growth in the U.S., along with time spent on the site, is slowing as the world’s biggest social network saturates its home market, according to ComScore Inc.

The number of visitors rose 5 percent in April from a year earlier, down from a 24 percent surge in the same month of 2011, market researcher ComScore Inc. said in an e-mailed statement today. The average time spent on the site by each vistor climbed 16 percent, less than the 23 percent increase a year earlier.
