Will Facebook Reach 152 Million U.S. Users Next Year?

Facebook’s membership in the U.S. might have dipped recently, but eMarketer expects it to bounce back up to reach 152.1 million in 2013.

The growth will come from increased usage by older users, specifically those over the age of 50; eMarketer sees the penetration rate among these demographics reaching up to 89 percent of Internet users by 2013.

Readers, what do you think about the future growth of Facebook usage in the U.S.?
