While Facebook is still experiencing user growth, having reached 687 million monthly active users at the start of this month, this growth rate has been lower than normal for the second consecutive month, according to Inside Facebook.
Good news, Spotify, the freemium web music service says it has plans to expand “into every country”, including Ireland, in the future, although just not yet. Responding to a question from this site Spotify says that they plan to open the music services to as wide an audience as possible as soon as they can. When asked specifically about Ireland Spotify said that they don’t foresee launching the service in the country soon, despite great interest in the site by Irish music fans. Spotify said, “We know just how passionate Irish music fans are but we don’t have any immediate plans to launch there.”
