Accounting Policy on Revenue Recognition

Revenue is recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to the customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration Facebook expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services.

Facebook determines revenue recognition through the following steps:

  • identification of the contract, or contracts, with a customer;
  • identification of the performance obligations in the contract;
  • determination of the transaction price;
  • allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and
  • recognition of revenue when, or as, Facebook satisfies a performance obligation.

Revenue excludes sales and usage‑based taxes where it has been determined that Facebook is acting as a pass‑through agent.
