Facebook brings in over $400 per second
Now that’s real revenue generating power. But even Facebook experiences “technical difficulties” from time to time. Every now and then, the social media platforms takes a crash, most recently being offline for over 30 minutes. At approximately $407 of revenue being generated every second, 30 minutes of downtime comes to a loss in profits of somewhere in the $855,000 range. And these figures are based on last quarter’s estimates.
From July to September of 2014, Facebook made a whopping $3.2 billion!
While social media is widely used by the public-at-large to share photos, chat with friends, and play innovative video games, small business owners and major corporations tend to rely on Facebook as a method of increasing their own company profits and boosting brand name visibility at the same time. So, the next time Facebook goes down, imagine the millions of business owners and CFO’s around the world who are most likely screaming at their computer screens while waiting in anxious anticipation for the site to reboot.
