    Results soothe nerves over scandal-hit Facebook

    Before the results on Wednesday evening, the row over the improper sharing of data had knocked 13 percent, or more than $70 billion (50 billion pounds), off the market value of the world's biggest social network. The first quarter numbers showed Facebook's quarterly profit rose 63 percent, and revenue 49 percent, beating already upbeat analysts' estimates on the back of growing ad sales. "Facebook's ad unit innovation, investment and focus on bringing new advertisers to the platform are driving this," Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said.
