According to the Financial Times, Facebook will begin showing advertising to mobile devices in March as a way to tap into a new revenue stream. The wording on this new news indicates that ads may not be your typical bottom or top locked banner, but may instead be worked in as a “featured story” through your feed. So rather than just seeing your friends’
life story spamming that no one cares about posts, you may also see something labeled “featured” that would essentially be an ad.
We aren’t sure if this will also apply to the Facebook Android app, but you can imagine that it will at some point.
