down arrow1 3 Reasons Social Media Stocks are FallingShares of TWTR stock have fallen 46% since late December. Facebook is down 16% from its early-March peak. LinkedIn has made a string of lower lows since September, hitting a multi-year low last week to bring the total tumble to 42%. And Yelp is still down 39% from its early-March high, despite a recent uptick.

With losses that large and that widespread, it would be naive to chalk them up to “just a little volatility.” This is something systemic, and something the market feels very strongly about — completely reversing the bullishness surrounding all of these names not too long ago.

Here’s a look at why social media stocks are falling.
