Facebook growth is peaking, time to take the next step with AR/VR and AI

Monday 6 February 2017 | 15:01 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background

The company will increase its investments in AR/VR and AI, which will put further pressure on margins and free cash flow. Facebook has plenty of meat on its bones though to get through the next phase.
