Facebook Plans To Put Ads In Messenger

Facebook has plans to launch ads in Messenger, according to a leaked document acquired by the staff at TechCrunch. When asked about the ads, Facebook gave the standard "We don’t comment on rumor or speculation" statement.

The document, obtained by TechCrunch but kept private to protect its verified source, says businesses will be able to send ads as messages to people who previously initiated a chat thread with that company. To prepare, the document recommends that businesses get consumers to start message threads with them now so they’ll be able to send them ads when the feature launches.
