Facebook’s UK Cambridge Analytica Fine
$5,100,000,000 → Facebook’s last quarter net income.
$56,000,000 → Facebook’s daily net income.
$2,340,000 → Facebook’s hourly net income.
$644,000 → Facebook’s UK Cambridge Analytica Fine.
Last week, it was reported that #Facebook would face a £500,000 fine from the UK over the Cambridge Analytica scandal - but that is a drop in the bucket. Facebook made $5.1 billion in net income last quarter, a figure that makes the $644,000 fine difficult to see (the USD equivalent of the fine).
An hourly view finally gives some sense of scope. Still, even by that metric, Facebook’s profit dwarfs the fine.
