Trader’s remarks: They story of Facebook has been fascinating so far. Created in a Harvard dorm room, it now has a market capitalisation of $315bn. The hype around Facebook’s mobile dominance is all the more interesting because just a few years ago investors had a negative view on its earnings for its seeming lack of a mobile strategy. In just four years Facebook has created a $13 billion mobile-advertising business. That is the revenue it generated from mobile ads in 2015. In the last quarter, as the chart demonstrates, Facebook reaped 80% of its ad revenue from smartphones and tablets.
