C/NET: Facebook shares are down today, spelling some possible erosion in the stock price heading into the rest of the week of trading.

During the period, the company's revenue grew 40 percent year over year to $1.59 billion. Facebook was also able to post an adjusted earnings per share of 17 cents, beating Wall Street's estimates.
