Your Facebook Messenger app will soon be filled with ads

For that, Facebook has its own Advertisements.

"The industry term for this is ratio of ads to other content, called "ad load, ' and Facebook says News Feed's ad load is all maxed out hinting that its revenue growth might slow down 'meaningfully" this year due to this", the ReCode report said on Saturday.

Facebook announced that this change will fully launch before the end of 2017 first on a very restricted level with few ads but later a whole wide range of options will be enabled gradually.

You might have tried to run away from ads, but they keep appearing everywhere, invading our News Feeds and even our messages.

WhatsApp, with 1.2 billion users, is also preparing for a business push, and recently brought Facebook exec Matt Idema over as COO to get its business ambitions moving.

In a world populated by ad-blocking through browsers, segregated apps such as Facebook's and Twitter's have remained isolated from the trend, and a place toguarantee eyeballs on ads for marketers, aided by Facebook's wealth of user data and advanced targeting. However, the big difference, of course, is the fact that you won't be able to buy products directly on Facebook through the ads. Like Google, the social network frequently experiments with new ideas, and groups of users are often used to beta test features. Facebook, which is the world's largest social media company, is planning to monetise its messaging app. We remind you that the company has now released ads for Facebook Messenger.

That means that Facebook's next cash cow is already working. This is a brilliant idea considering the fact that you can actually know the person you are dealing with-quite different and safer than the Craigslist's way of dealing with someone anonymously.
