On Thursday, Meta PlatformsFacebook owner Meta, had its stock market value plummet by more than $230 billion (£169 billion), a record daily loss for a US company.
Its stock dropped 26.4 per cent after the company’s quarterly results disappointed investors.

That comes after Meta disclosed that Facebook’s DAUs dropped to 1.929 billion in the three months ending in December, down from 1.930 billion the previous quarter.
