Your Facebook Feed Will Now Feature Video Ads, “Finally” Said No One Ever
Facebook has formally launched A) another way to raise revenue and B) another reason for you to not use the social media platform anymore. It’s basically video ads — TV commercials — that launch automatically as you scroll through your newsfeed. Each is a 15-second ad pop-up that’ll play sound and maximize if clicked.
As you may or may not know, since going public Facebook has struggled to convince Wallstreet types and advertisers that they can make a profit on mobile devices with more ads. Now, having at least sort of solved that problem with these video pop-ups, the new problem they’ll face is how to convince young people that they still want to use Facebook.
