Associated Press technology writer Barbara Ortutay reviews the bidding, and the burgeoning litigation swirling around the IPO for social media juggernaut Facebook
"Facebook's initial public offering is the subject of two congressional inquiries and mounting lawsuits as the social network enters its fifth day of public trading.
"The shares regained some ground Wednesday, rising $1, or 3.2 percent, to close at $32. They were up another 50 cents, or 1.6 percent, to $32.50 in early premarket trading Thursday. But they are still more than 14 percent below their $38 per share IPO price last week.
"The stock's rocky inaugural trading day last Friday was followed by a two-day decline."
