29 Jul 2015

Facebook has reported sales of US$4.04bn in the second quarter, representing a 39pc jump in revenue for the social network.

Much of this rise can be attributed to mobile advertising revenue, which rose to 76pc of total revenue from 62pc this time last year.

Monthly active users rose 13pc year-over-year to 1.49bn, while Facebook’s mobile active user count jumped 23pc to 1.31bn.

The San Francisco-based company’s total expenses shot up 82pc to US$2.77bn in the three months ended June 30 as it invests in various projects and data centres.

“This was another strong quarter for our community,” said Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. “Engagement across our family of apps keeps growing, and we remain focused on improving the quality of our services.”
