Facebook looking to add video advertising

Posted: Updated:

Facebook is taking a long look at allowing video ads on the popular social media network, according to a report in Wall Street Journal.

Video is a key source of revenue for online outlets, but the Journal said CEO Mark Zuckerberg doesn't want to upset 1.1 billion users.

The Journal reported, "As soon as this fall, Facebook plans to launch a video-ad service that will show members 15-second-or-less clips on both smartphones and the Web, according to people with knowledge of the matter."

Facebook said the online ads could hit as soon as this fall and would be prominent on desktop and mobile devices, but one issue for Facebook is making sure the videos load quickly.
