There are so many positives to take away from the Q2 results released yesterday by Facebook. With increases in pretty much all of the right places and expectations surpassed across the board, it is unsurprising that share prices hit an all-time high off the back of the announcement.
One of the most impressive figures is highlighted in the infographic below. In Q2, the company posted a year-on-year increase in net income of 71 percent. Moving up from the $2.3 billion in 2016, the last three months put $3.9 billion in the Facebook coffers. Revenue is a similar story, with global advertising income helping to power a 45 percent year-on-year increase to $9.2 billion.
