Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) beat earnings per share (EPS), revenue, and user growth expectations in its 2016 Q3 earnings report. But the stock is down 9.18% over the last five days because Facebook warned revenue growth rates will decline over the short term because it has reached a saturation point in the amount of ads shown on its pages. Facebook will also be spending more money on hiring and investing in data center expansion. But CEO Mark Zuckerberg's big bet is on video, and it seems to be paying off. According to TechCrunch, Facebook has grown its average revenue per user by 49.1% in the U.S. and Canada. Zuckerberg is putting more efforts behind the social media giant's video efforts with live streaming through Facebook Live.
