Meta Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ: META), the parent of popular social networking platform Facebook, reported lower revenues and earnings for the third quarter of 2022. Earnings also missed the market’s prediction.
Third-quarter revenues decreased by 4% to $27.7 billion, mainly reflecting a slowdown in the demand for advertising services. At the end of the quarter, the company had 2.96 billion monthly active users even as the number of daily active users rose by 3%.
Reflecting the weak top-line performance, third-quarter net profit decreased to $4.40 billion or $1.64 per share from $9.19 billion or $3.22 per share in the same period of 2021. Earnings also fell short of expectations.
