Twitter has slowest user growth in recent history

Reuters: Twitter Inc on Wednesday reported its slowest pace of user growth in recent company history, dimming hopes that the social media phenomenon can sustain its torrid pace of expansion and wiping out nearly a fifth of the company’s value in after-hours trading. The San Francisco company posted better-than-expected fourth-quarter revenue of $243 million in its first results as a public company. But investors focused on the anemic user growth, as well as a severe decline in timeline views, a measure of user engagement. Twitter, which held a highly anticipated initial public offering in November at $26 a share, has divided investor opinion in recent months, as shares raced to more than $66...

STOCKHOLM, (Reuters): Swedish enterprise software maker IFS plans to make another acquisition in 2014 and targets companies worth around $ 20 million, Chief Executive Alastair Sorbie told Reuters on Wednesday. “During the course of the year, we would be looking for M&A-activity,” Sorbie said, adding that the company normally does about one acquisition per year and that this is the aim for 2014 as well. IFS last year took a break from acquisitions as management was occupied with an efficiency program and the firm also bought back a joint venture. “We prefer to do acquisitions from the cash we have,” Sorbie said. The company earlier on Wednesday reported net revenues of 790 million...

As Facebook celebrates its 10th birthday, one of its biggest challenges is to tap the mobile market in emerging Asian economies, where it can drive expansion after growth in the West tapers off. India is expected to overtake the United States as the country with most Facebook users in 2014, with its total number forecast to surge beyond the 150 million mark from the current 93 million level. But despite its rapid growth in parts of Asia, experts say Facebook cannot afford to be complacent and locally-tailored competitors are threatening to steal its thunder in countries such as Indonesia. With Internet penetration still relatively low in Asia’s emerging economies, many people’s first online...
