NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz is shedding another 450,000 of the social networking company's shares, for a take of about $8.3 million.

Moskovitz has been selling 150,000 shares a day and disclosing the sales every three days. Including the most recent sales, he still holds about 132 million shares.

The latest filing was made Tuesday and covered sales since last Thursday. He sold shares at prices ranging from $17.56 to $19.42.

Shares of Facebook Inc., based in Menlo Park, Calif., have been in steep decline since debuting at $38 each in May. They ended Tuesday's trading at $17.73.

Moskovitz, 28, was Mark Zuckerberg's Harvard roommate when they founded Facebook in 2004. He left in 2008 and started the software company Asana.
