Facebook’s stock endured several blows this year, with the media mammoth’s first tumble coming in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal. (The Silicon Valley company’s stock hit a one-year low in March.)

It averaged 1.47 billion daily active users, an increase of 11%.

The question: Can Facebook bounce back again?
