In recent years, Meta has devoted itself to the development of the Metaverse. Its core project, Reality Labs, lost US$3.67 billion in profit, and its loss ratio expanded to 40%. Revenue fell 49% year-on-year to only 285 million yuan, lower than the expected 400 million yuan. Meta fell for two consecutive quarters, which is believed to be related to TikTok’s competition and declining advertising sales. Revenue fell 4% during the period to only $27.71 billion, higher than the expected $27.4 billion.
