The partial government shutdown in the U.S. is having a detrimental effect on the stock market and social media stocks (NASDAQ:SOCL) like Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), LinkedIn Corp (NYSE:LNKD) and Yelp Inc (NASDAQ:YELP) have not been spared either.
The social media sector is feeling the heat, although it has sailed through the economic uncertainty in the U.S. in the past. The sector has been immune to a considerable extent to political problems and the worsening debt situation in the country. However, economic uncertainties have been continuing for a while now and social media, which is funded by advertising budgets, is now seeing the impact as well.
Different economic and news reports don’t paint a very rosy picture. The Institute of Supply Management findings suggest that sales dipped sharply, along with new orders, and hiring reduced at U.S. service companies. The report covers industries such as retail, construction, health care and financial services.
