Facebook Messenger is trialing autoplaying video ads

8 monthes ago   |   By TechRadar

After seemingly running out of space for ads in its newsfeed, social-media giant Facebook is now in the process of trialling autoplaying video ads in its popular messaging platform, Facebook Messenger. Alongside chats in your inbox from your friends, family members, and people-you-met-that-one-time, you'll now be watching video commercials - a form of advertising that nets Facebook much more money than regular static ads. According to the social network's first quarter earnings for 2018 , advertising was responsible for bringing in 98.6% of the company's total revenue, accounting for $11.8...

Facebook seemingly took a look at its Messenger and decided it didn't contain enough stuff already. Hence, the company is adding autoplay video ads to the chat app. The rollout has started already, but as usual it may be a while before you see them.
Facebook Messenger started showing static ads last year, and now it's upping the ante. The app has been accused of bloat many times, and this will certainly not help alleviate people's fears about it turning into something that's not very streamlined.
Facebook has in the past admitted that it's pretty much running out of spaces to place...
