determining reasons for user dropout

Hello. I'm curious about methods for finding out why subscribers to a
site stop visiting that site. For example, imagine that I have some
social networking site, and I notice that some subscribers (some of

their accounts, they just stop showing up.

How might I discover their reasons for dropping out?
