The Global X Social Media Index ETF (NasdaqGM: SOCL) jumped 10.2% over the past month and is up 9.5% year-to=date.
Facebook will announce its quarterly results after the close Wednesday. FB shares were 1.5% higher late in the session on expectations that the social networking site could post strong third quarter results, TheStreet reports.

SOCL’s second largest component holding is FB at 10.2%.
The social media sector has been rising on strengthening earnings results. For instance, LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD) reported better-than-expected quarterly results on both the top and bottomline last week, Forbes reported.
