Tag Archives: Facebook messenger to start showing adverts

Would you still use Facebook Messenger if it had ads? – More info

The Verge reported that Facebook plans to introduce paid advertisements in Messenger within the next few months, according to a new report. TechCrunch writes that Facebook has distributed a document to businesses indicating they will be able to message customers directly beginning in the second quarter of the year. Businesses will only be able to send messages to customers that have already initiated a conversation, according to the report. The move is consistent with Facebook’s move to make Messenger the primary way that customers interact with businesses for everything from shopping to customer support.

So how does that sound ? Soft adverts in your Facebook Messenger? Personally, it would turn me off ever using such a service but I know many people do use Messenger.
