The company's second-quarter report shows Facebook continuing to slowly gain more users while increasing its mobile advertising dollars.
The social network performed better than expected on both revenue and earnings per share. It also closed the quarter with 1.15 billion monthly active users.
The average corporate venture-capital funding deal during the period was $17.8 million, easily topping the first quarter's $13 million figure.
The company added 1.1 million net new customers, but lost 101,000 contract subscribers as iPhones at Verizon Wireless and AT&T applied additional competitive pressure.
