Facebook Market Value Tops $200 Billion
The market value of the social networking site Facebook has crossed the $200 billion mark, making it the 22nd largest company in the world.
According to media reports the company holds a market capitalisation of $200.26 billion. Future prospects for Facebook are bright because the firm is yet to monetise acquisitions like photo-sharing site Instagram and mobile messaging service WhatsApp. Facebook has also purchased virtual reality headset maker Oculus VR for nearly $2 billion.
It is also some time away from placing a significant number of pricey video ads in users’ news feeds.
The company also announced that it now has 100 million users in Africa. It now ranks just behind Verizon Communications and ahead of Toyota Motot on the list of the world’s biggest corporations.
