If you have a Facebook page, you probably send private messages to your family and friends. Now you have something extra to look forward to. Not content to bombard you with ads in the sidebar or among your news feed, Facebook has been testing ad placement in messages sent from Australia and Thailand. Now these messages are going to be tested in the U.S.
It shouldn’t be long before some ad blocking software modifies its code to take care of these pesky little inserts as well as the more traditional kind. Is there an alternative? Probably not. Like Google’s search engine, eBay, and Amazon, Facebook is the main game in town for 95% of the population.
