Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) reported another quarter of strong growth. But the growth was down from previous quarters. That was the case not just for revenue, but also for net income, earnings per share, and user metrics. In addition, Facebook saw its daily and monthly active users decline sequentially in Europe, and management guided for a further slowdown in revenue growth in the quarters ahead.

Here are the key takeaways from Facebook's second quarter.

Individual stocks can enjoy head-turning rallies over short periods of time. As of this writing, for example, the top stock in the S&P 500 has risen by just under 200% so far in 2018.

But the real life-changing returns occur over time frames that are measured in years or even decades. So, with that ultra-long-term focus in mind, we asked three Motley Fool contributors to highlight a few stocks with unusually strong outlooks.

ossolillo (NVIDIA): I've always been a fan of the semiconductor industry. I think semiconductors are building blocks of the future -- a modern-day commodity of sorts -- so one of my first individual stock purchases over a decade ago was a chipmaker. Unfortunately, it wasn't NVIDIA. The maker of graphics processing units (GPUs) didn't hit my buy-list radar until much later as I never saw a future for the company outside of the video game industry.
Facebook ‘s rolling out the next stage of its expanded transparency push, with users who manage ‘large’ Facebook Pages being asked to go through a new authorization process before they’ll be able to continue publishing posts on the Page.

As outlined in the above example flow, the authorization process will prompt users who manage Pages with large potential reach to secure their account with two-factor authentication, and confirm their primary country location. The process is rolling out first to US businesses, with Facebook looking to expand the system more broadly over time.

Following parent-company Facebook’s lead, Instagram has this week announced a new set of tools designed to help users get a better understanding of who, exactly, is behind influential Instagram accounts, while also providing a new option for users to log-in via third-party authenticator apps.

The biggest of the three updates is a new information tab for "accounts that reach large audiences" – as explained by Instagram CTO Mike Krieger:

“In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to see more information about accounts on Instagram that reach large audiences so that you can evaluate the authent

icity of the account. To learn more about an account, go to their Profile, tap the … menu and then select “About This Account.” There, you will see the date the account joined Instagram, the country where the account is located, accounts with shared followers, any username changes in the last year and any ads the account is currently running.”

As noted, the addition's very similar to Facebook’s recently announced ad and Page transparency tools, which enable users to get more insight into the ads a Page is running, and who, specifically, is behind the Page.

The idea is that by giving users access to such information, Facebook can expand the pool of people keeping an eye out for potentially malicious actors. While not everyone will bother to check the details, it only takes one report on a suspect account to alert Facebook or Instagram’s security teams, and they can then review and remove questionable Pages and profiles before they have a chance to do any damage.

The EU Commission is proposing to end the practice of adjusting clocks by an hour in spring and autumn after a survey found most Europeans opposed it.

Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said millions "believe that in future, summer time should be year-round, and that's what will happen".

The Commission's proposal requires support from the 28 national governments and MEPs to become law.

In the EU clocks switch between winter and summer under daylight saving time.

A European Parliament resolution says it is "crucial to maintain a unified EU time regime".

However, the Commiss

ion has not yet drafted details of the proposed change.

In a consultation paper it said one option would be to let each member state decide whether to go for permanent summer or winter time. That would be "a sovereign decision of each member state", Commission spokesman Alexander Winterstein explained on Friday.

He stressed that the proposal was "to no longer constrain member states into changing clocks twice per year".

The UK is one of the 28 nations, but is due to leave the European Union in March 2019. Any change would be unlikely to happen before then.

The Commission warns that uncoordinated time changes between member states would cause economic harm.

Now, a small, new study sheds light on exactly how the drug works to treat depression, with a surprising finding: Ketamine needs to activate opioid receptors in order to have anti-depressant effects.

The new findings challenge previous views on how the drug works to treat depression, the researchers said. "It doesn't work like everyone thought it was working," co-senior study author Dr. Alan Schatzberg, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford Uni

Ronaldo, who left Real Madrid to sign for Serie A giants Juventus earlier this summer, will also be expected to pay a fine of as much as €19 million (£16.9 million).

The deal still needs to be rubber-stamped before a plea is entered and payment made. Things are expected to be made official in days, per the report.
