Facebook's stock fell on Wednesday as employees of the social networking site were able to to sell their shares for the first time. The lockup period expired for 229 million shares on Monday, but since the markets were closed for two days due to Hurricane Sandy, this was employees' first chance to sell. Facebook's share price dropped more than 4 percent earlier in the day, though it has recovered a bit since. Facebook shares are down more than 40 percent since the May IPO.
