Facebook’s Sunny Third-Quarter Results – Infographic

Facebook reported its third-quarter earnings on Tuesday and to the surprise and delight of Wall Street, the results were not terrible.

In fact, there’s reason to be optimistic that the company is adapting to its fast-growing mobile user base. Key statistics in this regard include the company’s assertion that $3 million a day in revenues now come from mobile ads and that mobile advertising makes up 14% of overall revenues.

Google’s 3rd Quarter Result A Disappointment? – Infographic

Google‘s third-quarter earnings report leaked four hours early Thursday afternoon. The earnings, which missed Wall Street’s expectations, sent the stock down more than 8% before trading was halted. Google said R.R. Donnelley, its filing agent, is to blame.

Earnings were $9.03 a share on $11.33 billion in revenue, missing expectations of $10.63 a share on revenue of $11.86 billion. Profits took a 20% dip due to costs related to the acquisition of Motorola and Android development. Google’s paid clicks were up 33% year-over-year, but cost-per-clicks revenue declined 15% from the year previous.

Numbers are one thing, but the data is much easier to take in visually, which you can do in the Statista graphic below. What do you make of Google’s less-than-stellar third quarter? Share your thoughts in the comments.
