Mark Zuckerberg, founder and chief executive officer of Facebook Inc.,By Alexei Oreskovic

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Facebook Inc (FB) posted a 32 percent jump in third-quarter revenue to $1.26 billion, as the company reignited advertising growth with the help of larger-than-expected gains in mobile.

The company's shares leapt 9 percent to $21.22 in after-hours trading on Tuesday.

Advertising revenue increased 36 percent year-on-year to $1.09 billion, but revenue from its payments and other businesses increased just 13 percent to $176 million.

Mobile revenue made up 14 percent of total advertising sales, which analysts said came in above their expectations.

"Advertising revenue from mobile was the number that really stood out," said Sterne, Agee & Leach analyst Arvind Bhatia. "They are saying mobile ad revenue was 14 percent of total ad revenue. That would be about $140 million and I was expecting $40 or $50 million from this."

The world's No.1 online social network company posted a net loss of $59 million, or 2 cents a share, in the three months ended September 30. It had a profit of $227 million or 10 cents a share a year earlier.

Its third-quarter revenue surpassed the average analyst expectation of $1.23 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

This increase in revenue is all because of the mobile payment solution. Now paying games and credits in facebook has been easier with mobile payment. I just wish facebook would avoid partnerships with single providers. I wish are open for all mobile payment solutions like the one I use mPowa (

I had the same problem on the other end. I was a writer for them and they kept me from communicating with the customer who needed assistance quickly. Don't get ripped off. Know who your writer is.
