Apparently, after acquiring WhatsApp and Instagram, the stakes of Facebook are already high, and we expect some significant tech advancements from social media conglomerate.

6. Weibo Corp.
Weibo Corporation is the social network giant based in Beijing, China. The company has slowly but steadily made its way into the top tech companies of the world. Weibo Corporation rightly deserves a place in this rundown. The company has regularly posted impressive growth. With its stock’s rallying 200% over the past 12 months and triple-digit P/E ratio made it stand-out among its competitors.
The bright spot over here is that the Weibo Corporation has the backing of big names like Alibaba and Sina.

Don’t underestimate the existence of Amazon in the tech space. The American electronic commerce has already made considerable strides in the multiple fields. The company has its presence in the cloud computing as well. Jeff Bezos founded Amazon on July 5, 1994, and since then the company has garnered a lot of fame. In terms of revenue and market capitalization, Amazon is the largest Internet retailer in the world. If we talk about the total sales, the tech giant is second only to Alibaba Group.
