The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Brenton Flynn discusses topics around the investing world.

While that still meant a slight decline, its a positive development nonetheless and may cause any Facebook bulls to come out of hiding next week. Brenton isn't convinced quite yet, and in the following video he discusses a few key Facebook headlines from the past week, along with a glimpse to the week ahead.

The report won't be available forever, so click here to get access today -- it's totally free.
