Facebook, it appears, can’t be hurt—not by major ad buyers boycotting its service, not by state and federal investigations, and not even by a pandemic. Despite the impact of COVID-19 on its ad sales, Facebook impressed Wall Street all year by beating expectations. The company ended 2020 with almost $86 billion in revenues, up 22% year over year, and with $29 billion in profits, up nearly 58%. But Facebook faced major backlash for lax handling of hate on its service, including from former President Donald Trump, whom the service eventually barred after the U.S. Capitol riot. And this year, Facebook risks a big financial hit owing to Apple’s new privacy controls that let users limit tracking of their data.
