According to reports, future prospects for the Mark Zuckerberg-led Facebook are bright because the firm is yet to monetise acquisitions like photo-sharing site Instagram and mobile messaging service WhatsApp.

It is also some time away from placing a significant number of pricey video ads in users' news feeds.

Facebook has also purchased virtual reality headset maker Oculus VR Inc for nearly $2 billion.

The company on Monday announced that it now has 100 million users in Africa.
