Facebook made $40 billion in advertising revenue previous year, second only to Google when it comes to its share of the global digital advertising market.
Patience with the social network had already worn thin among users, advertisers and investors after the company said last year that Russian Federation used Facebook for years to try to sway United States of America politics, an allegation Moscow denies.
"These numbers might not worry Facebook too much, but there are less drastic steps users are taking that should be worrying as they directly impact Facebook's business model", analyst Carolina Milanesi said in a statement.
Facebook introduced Messenger Kids - which it says is its first app for kids - in December, and expanded the app to Android in February. "So it's a convenient trope, but I think it's one that can lead you down a path where only the people who live in that space get to make policy on that space". There's a number of local groups as well, with community-based Facebook pages posting news and information related to their respective areas.

They don't want you to look at their stuff. You just have to be able to remember what your grandmother told your parents who told you that your privacy should not be compromised. "They can get your personal info, your friends personal info".
According to a recent Goldman Sachs analysis, Facebook could lose about 7% of its revenue because of less time spent on the platform and lost ad revenue as a result of European regulations.
