It's not been a great week for the world's most expansive and invasive social site. One of those times was Monday when roughly 50 percent of users in North and South America found themselves unable to log into, or even load, Facebook due to a "routine test" gone sideways. During a recent internal survey, only half of the 29,000 respondents said that FB is making the world a better place (a 19 point drop since the last survey) and 70 percent were proud to work there (a 17 point drop).
Inc. The quintet—commonly known as the FAANG stocks—has suffered steep losses as investors rethink their lofty valuations and projected growth in the months ahead.

Facebook has 2.27bn users, nearly 1bn more people than there are in China. A New York Times investigation last week revealed how founder Mark Zuckerberg and chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg leveraged lobbying might and personal clout to deflect responsibility from Facebook for the spread of inflammatory content amid allegations that Russians manipulated the 2016 US elections.
shares were down 3% by Friday's close in a continuing fallout from a New York Times story that argued the firm failed to respond to such problems as fake news, malicious content and Russian interference in U.S. elections via social media. FB dropped $4.32 to $139.53 after earlier hitting a new 52-week intraday low of $137.77. Shares have most recently fallen after the Times reported on Wednesday that Facebook's top management, including CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg, ignored numerous warning signs of abuse and sought to keep the issues under wraps.
Nick Clegg has scrubbed all traces of his anti-Brexit activism from his public Facebook page as he begins a new job as the social network's head of global affairs.

Speaking in a joint interview on the sidelines of a development forum in Wilmington, Delaware, the two senators said that Facebook probably wouldn’t like what Congress does, so it should come up with a solution first. “If they don’t, if they continue to act as if we couldn’t possibly deign to regulate them, they’ll get regulated and they’ll be unpleasantly surprised with how swiftly it may happen,” said Coons, a Delaware Democrat and member Senate Judiciary Committee.
Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg is unlikely to relinquish his role atop the social network he founded, but one analyst argues that a leadership “shake-up” could benefit Facebook’s troubled shares.
If you believe in holding shares for the long-term, I’d suggest that you take a closer look at Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) stock.

Year-to-date, TWTR stock is up about 38% and Twitter stock price has increased almost 66% over the past 12 months.
