Meta Continues to Invest Aggressively as AI Drives Another Jump in Spending

Meta's Facebook is the largest social network in the world, with over 3 billion monthly active users. The growth in users and user engagement, along with the valuable data that they generate, makes Meta’s platforms attractive to advertisers. The combination of these valuable assets and our expectation that advertisers will continue shift their spending online bodes well for the firm’s top-line growth and cash flow.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

With more users and usage time than any other social network, Meta provides the largest audience and the most valuable data for social network online advertising.

Bears

Meta is currently a one-trick pony and will be affected severely if online advertising no longer grows or if more advertising dollars shift to others like Google or Snapchat.
