Facebook stock rises after Zuckerberg’s comments on mobile

It's common knowledge by now that Facebook's stock could be doing a whole lot better. Its stock price has been consistently falling ever since Facebook's IPO in May, partly over investor concerns that the company wasn't doing enough to make money from mobile users. Yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg got up on stage at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference, making his first appearance since Facebook went public.
