what time will facebook stock start selling, Facebook stock start selling oktober 2012,, facebook stock 2013 : Some of Facebook's early investors sold off their stock at the first chance they got, but CEO Mark Zuckerberg is hanging on to his shares for at least the next year.

Zuckerberg, who owns about 444 million shares plus an option for another 60 million, disclosed his plans in a Facebook regulatory filing late Tuesday.

Facebook is moving up the expiration date of a post-IPO ban on stock sales by employees by two weeks.

Facebook's stock (FB) fell to $17.55 in Tuesday trading, its lowest point ever, and closed down 33 cents at $17.73.

Facebook also said in a regulatory filing Tuesday that CEO Mark Zuckerberg won't sell stock in the company for at least the next 12 months.

Many of Facebook's rank-and-file employees can start selling stock they own on Oct. 29 instead of the earlier date of Nov. 14. Facebook says it's withholding about 101 million shares from its employee stock units to cover taxes they will incur at a rate of about 45%. It will then pay the tax obligations, currently estimated at around $1.9 billion, cash and credit.
