Starting in January, Facebook will "test" pre-roll ads "in places where people proactively seek out content, like Watch", Facebook's answer to Google'sYouTube. In its blog post, Facebook said it would no longer allow ads in the middle of videos unless the videos are at least three minutes long. This will replace the earlier arrangement where videos that were a minimum of 90 seconds were eligible for Ad Breaks. "Viewer satisfaction numbers are typically hard to lift, so this indicates a positive shift - increasing the likelihood people will continue watching the content through the break". Facebook says it took this step because profiles that are lower than 50k followers are more likely to share live videos that fail to comply with it its content guidelines for monetization.
"Engaging one-off videos that bring friends and communities together have always done well in News Feed and will continue to do so", the company said in the blog post.
