Stock falls 6 percent for the week

 

 

 

Facebook Inc. began trading publicly in mid-May following one of the most anticipated stock offerings in history. The IPO priced at the top of a projected range that Facebook had boosted just days earlier.

 

The stock has fallen since then and has gone as low as $25.52.

 

Investors have been concerned about the social network's ability to keep increasing revenue and make money from its growing mobile audience, though many analysts hold positive long-term opinions.
