It’s been an epic year for technology and social media stocks.
Not only were most of them unaffected by the virus disruptions; many benefited from them.
That’s the upside. But there’s the nasty underbelly as well.
Stuck at home and with tensions high in an election year, social media has arguably torn people apart more than it’s brought them together.
And that hasn’t gone unnoticed. Prominent politicians are itching to regulate the industry or bring antitrust action.
So, while the industry is riding high today, threat of regulatory disruption looms.
And social media darling Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) is at the forefront of that debate as it controls many popular platforms, including Facebook and Instagram.
But Facebook’s stock has enjoyed the tech run-up. Shares are up about 20% this year and about 82% from its 52-week lows. But the stock hasn’t been immune to the recent sell-off in the tech-heavy Nasdaq. FB is down almost 20% from its recent highs.
Facebook, Inc. is focused on building products that enable people to connect and share through mobile devices, personal computers and other surfaces.
The Company’s products include Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, WhatsApp and Oculus.
Facebook enables people to connect, share, discover and communicate with each other on mobile devices and personal computers.
Instagram enables people to take photos or videos, customize them with filter effects, and share them with friends and followers in a photo feed or send them directly to friends.
Messenger allows communicating with people and businesses alike across a range of platforms and devices.
WhatsApp Messenger is a messaging application that is used by people around the world and is available on a range of mobile platforms.
Its Oculus virtual reality technology and content platform offers products that allow people to enter an interactive environment to play games, consume content and connect with others.
