Facebook ad revenue increased 37% to $872 million in the first quarter of 2012, compared with $637 million in the first quarter last year. That represented 82% of Facebook's total first quarter revenue. Total revenue rose 45% to about $1.1 billion in the first quarter.
Facebook is widely expected to file a prospectus with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) after the markets close on Feb. 1, the first step in going public, according to multiple reports that cite sources familiar with the matter.
