The stock dropped sharply Monday after news broke that a political research firm, Cambridge Analytica, had illegitimately accessed 50 million user accounts. Shares then tumbled again on Tuesday when reports said the FTC would investigate whether the social media giant “violated terms of a consent decree over its use of personal data.”

The stock is down more than 5% year-to-date.
