SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Nasdaq futures dropped 0.85 percent late on Wednesday, suggesting the technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite index .IXIC would fall when trading opens on Thursday morning.

After the bell, Facebook (FB.O) slumped 21 percent following its quarterly report, setting off a cascade of selling in technology and other high-growth stocks listed on the Nasdaq, including Amazon (AMZN.O), Netflix (NFLX.O) and Alphabet (GOOGL.O).
