Item 8.01 Other Events.
On April 25, 2018, Facebook announced an increase of $9.0 billion in the amount authorized under its share repurchase program.

The timing and actual number of shares repurchased depend on a variety of factors, including price, general business and market conditions, and other investment opportunities. Shares may be repurchased through open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions, including through the use of trading plans intended to qualify under Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act.
