Facebook (FB) - Get Meta Platforms Inc. Report CEO Mark Zuckerberg sadly didn't take my question during an hour-long call with reporters on Wednesday afternoon. Boo. Nonetheless, Zuckerberg remained one part defiant, one part understanding of the issues facing his social media empire. Odd that Action Alerts Plus Holding Facebook's stock popped after-hours as he spoke -- it's very clear the next three-years for the company will see slowing profit growth (perhaps sharply).
