Faecbook has launched promoted posts, a new advertising option for marketers enabling them to promote status updates on a per-post basis. Facebook is rolling out Promoted Posts to all the brand pages and is available in India as well.
Pricing of Promoted Posts start from $5 and Promoted Posts will be marked as ‘sponsored’ in the news feed. A post can be promoted within 3 day period of creation and just like Facebook ads, the budget you set for your promoted post is a lifetime budget that will run over the entire duration of your promoted post (read the FAQ/hat tip: @beingpractical).
Companies like Facebook and Twitter have been pushing In-stream advertising, as opposed to pure-play banner ads. With mobile being the next frontier of monetization piece for Facebook, is in-stream advertising the only way to monetize eye balls?
What’s your opinion?
