Facebook is rolling out Facebook Ads Globally

Perfecting mid-roll video ads would be the best-case scenario, and would help Facebook finally cash in on advertisers' massive TV ad budgets.

Facebook has rolled out a new venture for all types of businesses who are looking for a global platform to advertise their products.

"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. But at 2 billion total users, Facebook can't keep that pace forever, especially because 731 million of the world's remaining 1.5 billion internet users who are not on Facebook are in China, where Facebook is blocked.

After testing Messenger ads in Thailand and Australia, Facebook has announced that advertisers will be able to buy advert slots within the app. It's made up of a combination of content from pages you don't now follow, but has proved popular with your friends, or with Facebook users in general. For now, the few ads you will see on the service will run as test, with only a few percentage of users in the USA able to access it.

Facebook describes what is then displayed as "top posts for you from across Facebook".

At the moment, Explore Feed is only showing up in Facebook's mobile apps, and the company has not said whether it will be making its way to the browser-based version of the social network. The only drawback with this update is you can't not remove this ads from the Messenger app. 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.
