Goldman sees Facebook (FB +1%) delivering Q1 mobile ad sales of $382M, well above a consensus the firm pegs at $320M-$330M. The forecast is giving a modest lift to shares, which have been pressured by ad concerns raised by others (I, II). Facebook, which posted mobile revenue of ~$365M in seasonally strong Q4 and has been aggressively rolling out new ad formats (as well as tweaking existing ones), posts its Q1 report on May 1. Also: The Des Moines Register reports Facebook plans to build a $1.5B Iowa data center; server flash supplier Fusion-io (FIO +1.1%) must be pleased. (eMarketer)
