Facebook Says It Will Report Second-Quarter Results July 26

Facebook Inc. (FB), owner of the world’s largest social-networking service, said it will release second- quarter results on July 26, 2012.

The company’s first earnings report since it sold shares in an initial public offering will take place after the close of trading that day, according to a post on Facebook’s investor relations Web page.

Investors will scour results for the Menlo Park, California-based company for any signs whether a growth slowdown persisted into the three-month period that ended in June. Revenue rose 45 percent in the first quarter, compared with 55 percent in the fourth quarter. Sales more than doubled in each of the three periods before that.
