Whom should have affected in this case have the least doubt, be assured: Fidelity still has a value, a very high even. Because Facebook announced on Wednesday, they reckon, because of violations of data protection have to pay a record penalty of up to five billion dollars. And the stock market? Is thrilled. The Facebook shares will rise within minutes to five percent.
Five billion dollars are finally manageable for a group that has earned in the past year, 22 billion. Especially if the thing is true with the Faithful. And the coming Facebook seems to be sure – what.
The past year was for the company a series of embarrassments. Starting with the scandal of the Cambridge Analytica, which was in March of 2018 to the public, took the place of a data protection breach to the other. Hardly the group had chief Mark Zuckerberg for the sorry, was the next publication.

The user seem all the scandals hardly deter. Although Two-thirds of the participating Americans indicated in a survey recently, you would be Facebook due to the data protection violations differently, or not at all. However, in the recently published Figures of the is not reflected.
according to them, the number of users, the Facebook visit at least once in a month has increased in the last quarter by 2.5 percent to 2.38 billion. The number of daily users of Facebook were 1.56 billion.
as Long as these stunning Figures continue to rise, will forgive the stock market, Facebook is probably the next scandal and, possibly, the next billion penalty. These Figures show how closely the social network with the life of a large part of the world's population. Who can reached so many people and this very targeted advertising to appeal to that will earn all of the scandals, in Spite of a lot of money.
And does Facebook: The turnover in the past three months, fraud is 15.08 billion dollars, which is more than expected and an increase of 26 percent within a year.
The expected billion penalty will come from the American trade, supervision of FTC. You investigated Facebook for a year, because of the political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica had unauthorized access to the data of 87 million Facebook users. The sum is likely to be so high because Facebook, with its continued misconduct will most likely be against a deal came, the group met in 2011 with the FTC. In it Facebook undertook, getting the consent of users before their data is passed on to third parties. The highest penalty imposed by the FTC, so far, amounted to just $ 22 million. Had to pay to Google in the year 2012, also due to violations of data protection.
Facebook's financial success story would probably have been brilliant, wouldn't have to wear the group's rapidly rising costs for employees. Today, about 36 percent more people for Facebook to work than a year ago. These are mainly employees, to keep abusive content off of the platform.
Too many scandals
