Meta Platforms Inc (META)
Meta is the world’s largest online social network, with 3.8 billion family of apps monthly active users. Users engage with each other in different ways, exchanging messages and sharing news events, photos, and videos. The firm’s ecosystem consists mainly of the Facebook app, Instagram, Messenger, WhatsApp, and many features surrounding these products. Users can access Facebook on mobile devices and desktops. Advertising revenue represents more than 90% of the firm’s total revenue, with more than 45% coming from the U.S. and Canada and over 20% from Europe.
Overall, the company has seen significant growth in revenue, gross profit, operating income, and net income from continuing operation net minority interest from 2021 to 2023. This growth is likely due to a number of factors, including the company’s expansion into new markets, the launch of new products, and the improvement of its operational efficiency.
