- While the launch of Facebook's (FB -0.7%) anticipated (and potentially very lucrative) news feed video ad product remains pending, the company is rolling out a video option for its fairly successful mobile app install ads. Developers can embed videos into their ads, which appear within news feeds displayed on Facebook's Android/iOS apps.
- Facebook is also giving developers the option to pay for ads on a per-install basis, rather than per ad click or 1K ad impressions. The new options come three weeks after Facebook rolled out a reminder ad option for users who have already installed an app, and disclosed its app install ads have driven 145M downloads.
