Facebook: quarterly net income 2010-2019

This represents a return to form from the previous two quarters, where the company's net income was less than 3 billion U.S. dollars respectively. This is largely related to legal expenses regarding a FTC matter and settlements in the United States. Facebook’s most recent annual net income amounted to 22 billion U.S. dollars.
