Further as per report findings "In second place, Google was up 10% to $155.5 billion while Amazon is valued at $100.8 billion".

Accordingly, Facebook's brand value has declined 6 percent this year in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica data scandal. Charles Trevail, Global Chief Executive of Interbrand, was quoted as saying "A decade after the global financial crisis, the brands that are growing fastest are those that intuitively understand their customers and make brave iconic moves that delight and deliver in new ways".
