Facebook Porters Five Forces Analysis 2019

Facebook boasts some incredible statistics that highlight why it has been very successful. A Porters five forces analysis of Facebook shows that the California based social network wields immense power over vertical five forces primarily Facebook buyers and suppliers whose bargaining power is low or moderate at best. This is predominantly because Facebook has achieved strong network effects from economies of scale and scope, which have ensured the social media network continues to enjoy high switching costs and strong lock-in effects over users. 
But while these factors have ensured Facebook’s dominance over rivals in the social media industry, the company remains vulnerable to the 3 horizontal forces of competition namely substitutes, new player entry and intensifying rivalry between current players. As a Facebook porters five forces analysis revealed, the social media industry is highly competitive with a rising number of substitute services such as Reddit, Digg, EyeEm, Next Door, or Family Wall, many of which can offer similar performance benefits such as sharing photos, videos and messages even though they are not direct competitors of Facebook. 
So though Facebook has created barriers that currently protect its market share, it remains vulnerable to new players who could take advantage of its privacy issues to exacerbate an exodus of more than 3 million teens that’s already underway in the core markets of the UK and US. It is already locked out of the world’s most populous country, a situation exacerbated by China-USA trade war tensions. So while Facebook still wields power over the forces of vertical competition (power of buyers and suppliers), the horizontal forces of competition (competition from rivals, substitutes and new entry) exert enough pressure on the industry to limit profitability and further dominance of Facebook in the future.

Amazon Pestle and Swot Analysis 2018

On 4th September 2018, Amazon became only the second company in history to reach a market capitalization of US$1 trillion, the other company being Apple. This capped off a tremendously successful last couple of years for the world’s biggest internet retailer. Amazon has been growing from strength to strength, purchasing Whole Foods for $13.7bn in 2017, diversifying into healthcare with the acquisition of PillPack in 2018 and making strategic investments in complimentary sectors such as online ads (hence taking on Google & Facebook) and its own logistics and delivery services. 
Nevertheless, a Pestle analysis for Amazon globally shows emerging threats that could undermine the book retailers’ dominance in key markets such as the US as well as the UK. One such key issue that’s a potent threat is Trump’s antitrust threats and calls to increase the taxes Amazon pays in the US.

The report also undertakes an Amazon Swot analysis to understand Amazons key strengths, as well as weaknesses, concluding with personal recommendations for ways the internet retailer can use its strengths to overcome its weaknesses, and ways to leverage new emergent opportunities to mitigate some of the arising threats from the external environment.
