Can Facebook Come Out of the Current Crisis?

Facebook is trending today as the company, along with other tech giants, is under scrutiny by the Federal Trade Commission on its data collection practices. However, The Street’s expert Jim Cramer said that investors should treat the current turmoil as a buying opportunity because the issue will be forgotten by the markets in the coming days.

The company will also benefit from the expected rise in advertisements on its platform in 2021 as the threat of the coronavirus pandemic abates after the vaccine. The company crushed analysts’’ expectations in the third quarter results, with a revenue of $21.5 billion.
