Facebook has achieved something that a few years ago seemed impossible for any tech company, surpassing $1 trillion in the stock market. At the time of writing, Yahoo Finance has stated that its valuation is $1.008 trillion.
Facebook officially becomes the first social network worth more than a trillion dollars
In this way, Mark Zuckerberg’s company joins Aba, Amazon, Microsoft and Google. As of today, for example, it’s clear that Apple has crossed $2 trillion. Microsoft pursued it and approached a trillion dollars.
Something interesting that The Verge points out is that Facebook is the first company founded after 2000 to cross the trillion-dollar mark, considering that both Apple and Microsoft were founded in the 1970s and Google and Amazon were founded in the 1970s.
The news comes at the best economic moment for the company, which continues to grow across all of its social networks.
