Facebook

Facebook was the focus of increased government scrutiny in 2019. Regulators at the state, federal, and international level reviewed the ways the company has handled user data and permitted the dissemination of misinformation—investigations that sometimes led to hefty fines or other penalties. But despite the mounting heat, Facebook continued to rake in revenue in 2019. The company, led by CEO Mark Zuckerberg, had $70.7 billion in sales, up nearly 27% from the previous year, which helped it rise nearly a dozen ranks in the Fortune 500. But 2020 will be particularly challenging one for Facebook as it tries to proactively remove misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic while policing bad actors on its platform during the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
