Facebook the social networking company based on Zuckerberg's vision of connecting the entire world has been a super growth company, as seen from Facebook stock graph. Our Facebook stock history chart shows that the company has increased its revenues by more than 100% since going public in 2012.
The company has taken several steps to grow since the IPO. Facebook growth chart shows the increase in revenues has been stunning for the last few years. But the most interesting part of the rapid growth is that it has been able to sustain these growth rates even as the revenue base has become huge, instead of allowing it to be a drag on it. It figured out a way to monetize mobile users by rolling out feed based ads. Now, mobile ad revenue is more than 50% of total revenue. Facebook’s ever-increasing advertising network has played a huge role in increasing their numbers, and the company has also benefited from Twitter’s below-par performance. As the only social media platform that is showing strong user growth, advertiser demand has obviously shifted towards Facebook. The firm also makes money through game payers. In fact Zynga was making around 70% of their revenue from their FB games. It has also made strategic acquisitions amounting to the tune of $22 billion plus. The two prominent ones till date are Instagram and Whatapp, the former at $1 billion and the latter at $16 billion.
The addition of Instagram’s monetization is another major factor for its growth.

However, at Amigobulls we felt the stock was overpriced when it debuted. Facebook stock price was half its launch price and we were right about the stock. But Facebook stock will storm higher in the years to come. The fundamentals of mobile use combined with eCommerce will ensure advertisers will gravitate to its platforms on mass.
