Facebook Messenger App Will Soon Show Ads on Its Home Screen

Marketing firms, which are expected to be keen to capitalize on this new opportunity to advertise products to Facebook Messenger's 1.2 billion monthly users, will be able to buy ads via the company's dedicated ad manager.

Once clicked, the ad will automatically redirect the person to a destination which can either be a website or a Messenger conversation.

Chudnovsky also said that the shift from beta testing to general availability will be based on user reception.
