In terms of performance guidelines for the third quarter, Meta expects revenue of 32 billion to 34.5 billion US dollars, higher than analysts' expectations of 31.18 billion US dollars. At the same time, this year's cost guidelines were raised to 88 billion to 91 billion US dollars, and this year's capital expenditure guidelines were lowered by 3 billion US dollars to save costs for non-AI servers, saying that continuing investment in AI and the metaverse business will lead to an increase in expenses next year, and losses in the metaverse business will increase dramatically next year.
