The market value of Facebook is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Facebook that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Facebook's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Facebook's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because Facebook's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Facebook underlying business (such as pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between Facebook's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Facebook value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Facebook's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
