Facebook Inc. – A peek into its patent portfolio

Dec 22, 2017

Facebook is a company that needs very little introduction. This social media giant is the fourth-largest Internet company by revenue, with 2 billion monthly active users.

Facebook held few patents of its own prior to its landmark 2012 IPO. In the months leading up to the IPO, it actively looked to bulk up its portfolio with acquisitions from IBM and AOL. Post the IPO, Facebook continued to build out its portfolio by upping its own patenting activity, and adding to its portfolio with periodic acquisitions.

This report takes a closer look at the patents in Facebook's portfolio that are currently in force. It includes a portfolio taxonomy and provides insights into various aspects of the overall portfolio.
