Facebook  (FB) - Get Report shares gained 2.84% to $247.11.

Travel-related internet stocks fell on Tuesday. Expedia  (EXPE) - Get Report fell 2.7% to $84.97 amid ongoing concerns about higher infection rates in the U.S. and elsewhere and a related collapse in demand for travel. In April, Expedia sold a $1.2 billion stake in its business to private equity groups Apollo Global and Silver Lake to fund operations during an expected extended drop in travel. 

TripAdvisor  (TRIP) - Get Report also fell 2.87% to $18.95. The company said on Tuesday that it will offer $500 million in new senior notes in an effort to raise capital during the pandemic. Proceeds from the five-year bonds will be used for general corporate purposes.
