NEW YORK ( TheStreet) --

ZipCar (ZIP) tumbled 36.50% to $6.75, a new all-time low, on Friday after falling short of analysts' second-quarter estimates and relaying a disappointing outlook for the third-quarter and the rest of the year.

The car-sharing network reported a penny of earnings on $70.8 million of revenue for the second quarter. For the third-quarter, the company expects to generate between $74 million and $77 million of revenue, and for the full year, between $272 million and $278 million. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters expect $80.27 of revenue for the third quarter and $285.80 for the full year.

Investor confidence in LinkedIn (LNKD) sent shares soaring 16.04% to $108.51 on Friday. Not only did the professional network release strong second-quarter earnings on Thursday, but a positive outlook for the rest of 2012.

LinkedIn revised its guidance for third-quarter, predicting sales of $235 million to $240 million. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters expect 16 cents a share on $236.06 million in revenue. LinkedIn expects revenue to be between $915 million and $925 million for 2012, up from the prior range of $880 million to $900 million.

Facebook (FB) rallied after hitting a new 52-week low of $19.82 on Thursday.

Earlier this week, the Menlo Park, Calif.-based social network reported that almost 9% of its active user accounts are fake.

Shares closed up 5.24% on Friday to finish at $21.09.

Electronic Arts (EA) filed a lawsuit against social gaming company Zynga (ZNGA), claiming The Ville infringes on copyrights to its Facebook game, The Sims Social.

Shares of Electronic Arts closed up 5.28% to $11.97 and Zynga gained 0.74% to $2.72. Earlier in the week, Zynga reached an all-time low of $2.66.
