Reasons For The Decline In Revenue?

Revenue From Ad

Apple over the years have been the arch-rival of Zuckerberg and with their new privacy policy, it has become harder to target smartphones and show them ads based on their online activity.

Despite the provocations, we shouldn’t underestimate Facebook as they have been one of the most consistent applications in the GenZ. Companies like Snapchat, Twitter, and Google have also shown a decreasing trend in revenue. The spotlight on Facebook is for its remarkable performance over the years and high expectations of the market from its new project Metaverse.

Mark Zuckerberg recently said that Facebook will be focusing on its reel growth and long-term prospects rather than maximizing short-term goals. The meta board believes in the bigger picture and has been very candid about its recent performances.
