Facebook Introduces Ads in the Messenger App

Facebook Messenger Home Screen Ads Rolling Out Worldwide

Facebook Messenger Home Screen Ads Rolling Out Worldwide

The world's biggest social network and a powerhouse in online advertising, Facebook has been working to diversify its revenue base as it expands into new areas. The social media behemoth through the service, is trying to catch in on how quickly the number of people who visit its "buy and sell" Groups each month has increased to 450 million. For now, the few ads you will see on the service will run as test, with only a few percentage of users in the U.S. able to access it.

Facebook made this known on Friday after announcing that it would start running ads inside Marketplace. It's tough to tell how popular Stories have been on other Facebook platforms like Messenger, WhatsApp and Facebook itself, but presumably those Story ads will show up on other platforms, too.

Recall that Facebook added a new tab to its app dedicated to peer-to-peer shopping last October.

AC Milan in £41million offer for Manchester United transfer target Renato Sanches
Several top clubs have shown an interest in signing the Portuguese midfielder this summer, so he is not short of options. Speaking recently, Bayern's chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admitted Sanches could be loaned out this summer.

When you click on the app and you are brought to the home page of Facebook Messenger, ads will be displayed and if the advert is clicked on, it will direct the user to the advertiser's website. One such recent experiment saw the arrival of a new version of the timeline for some users via a rocket icon in the Facebook app. Or at least that's the hope.

FACEBOOK IS ABOUT to make Messenger app users view adverts in the midst of their chat threads.

But even if none of these new ad formats stick, Facebook already has another cash cow hiding in the background: Instagram. Piper Jaffray believes Instagram did $2 billion in revenue in 2016, and that its revenue will grow to $22 billion by 2021.

That means that Facebook's next cash cow is already working.
