The latest news on the stock rate

In February 2022, the Facebook stock plummeted more than 20 percent after the release of its financial report. The fall in quotes was due to profits, which were less than expected. According to analysts' calculations, Facebook lost more than $200 billion overnight. After this fall, Facebook quotes have not recovered to their previous level as of March 11, 2022.

Q3 earnings were also below analysts' forecasts, causing the stock price to plummet. Facebook's advertising efficiency declined 15 percent last September, which also negatively affected its stock price. The reason for this was the iOS update.
