Facebook: How not to loose $800 billion this year and prosper – update

We are witnessing the rapid decline of one of the powerhouses of digital marketing – Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp – Meta. 

If your business relies on Facebook group marketing – be worried. 

Once a dominant monopoly – now blamed for Trumps and Brexit wins in favour of Russia, failing racial minorities, fanning a myriad of societal issues and delivering an endless amount of disinformation and misinformation worldwide – Facebook is on the slide and out of favour with legislators across the world. 

Consider the following 

  • This year, it lost $800 billion of its market capitalisation – a 70% fall from its peak. 
  • Reality Labs, Facebook’s metaverse, has losses of $4.5 billion in 2019, $6.62 billion in 2020, and $10.19 billion in 2021 = $21 billion.
  • Plus another $9.4 billion in losses for the last three quarters, operating losses of $31 billion. 
  • Meta relies on people liking having a heavy computer strapped to their faces. 

Facebook’s core advertising business has lost significant growth – many governments, with new legislation, strict privacy and competition laws, along with Apple’s IOS privacy changes, have ripped growth from Meta. 

Facebook’s inability now to harvest personal data to target users— costs a lot. 

Over the past four quarters, Facebook’s ad revenue has dropped. 

Facebook’s revenue is declining – its costs and expenses are surging, its operating margin is declining rapidly – and there is little hope for a short-term fix.  

Facebook’s core business is weaker in the markets than at any point. Advertisers see rising costs and less accuracy of targeting. Users experience organic posts strangled in favour of paid advertising. 

Diversification may be an intelligent strategy if Meta is vital to your marketing dollars. One hundred years ago, the Titanic was said to be unsinkable – it never completed its maiden voyage. Meta is a corporate giant – even giants can fail. 

It is time to ACCELERATE communities of PASSIONATE NEW BUYERS by fuelling and facilitating their insatiable hunger for authentic content and conversations – so your business captures enormous attention and engagement – influence and sell more.

Now the most valuable asset in the world today is attention.
