The report is the latest to highlight Facebook's problem with attracting and keeping young people, who have always been a core user base for the world's biggest social network.
Since 2008, the number of Facebook users in the USA has more than tripled, going from 44 million users to more than 169 million.
A report by eMarketer claims that the number of Facebook users under 24 will drop by about two million people over the course of 2018.
Last week, Facebook reported quarterly earnings, and revealed that the number of daily users in North America decreased for the first time, to 184 million from 185 million. What's more, some of the youngest kids in the USA will bypass signing up for Facebook altogether, a group dubbed the "Facebook nevers".
Facebook remains the most popular social network in the U.S. market with an estimated 169.5 million users this year, according to eMarketer.

Facebook will lose two-million users under the age of 25 in the United States in 2018 while Snapchat will add 1.9-million, EMarketer said on Monday, citing its own report. Snapchat is expected to grow by approximately 9 percent to 86.5 million users.
Facebook is losing its young members at an alarming rate, according to new research from eMarketer.
According to eMarketer analysts, this tactic could see younger users migrate from Snapchat to other platforms in order to avoid the influx of older people.
"Snapchat's popularity with teens and young adults has grown significantly since the platform first launched in 2011", eMarketer said.
However, Instagram overall is still bigger in the U.S. than Snapchat.
Also, what should be further disappointing for Facebook is that all those who will be backing off from the social platform won't be joining Instagram, also owned by Facebook. That's for the US Social Network Users chart, but it goes for all of their reports, too. While the apparent increase in variety could stem from a strain of thought that Facebook isn't the hip choice anymore, it also seems to stem from a disruption in the industry, as platforms, some highly similar and some fundamentally different, have gained substantial traction in recent years and months apparently through their own merits. Facebook estimates the number of U.S. users to hit 169.5 million by the end of 2018, which doesn't mark even an 1% increase. The research firm believes Instagram's U.S. user base will grow by 13 percent this year, to nearly 105 million people. Children under ten are already on social media. "That's the predicament Facebook is in", said eMarketer principal analyst Debra Aho Williamson.
