Facebook ads are about to get bigger (and more annoying)
Many of us may have stopped noticing, but if you’re accessing Facebook via the web then down the right-hand side of your News Feed there’s a column serving up ads about anything from weddings to shoes to bingo, depending on what Facebook thinks your interests are.
Today Techcrunch reports that because none of us are clicking anything on it ever, the right-hand ad column is set to get a lot bigger and more in yer face than ever before.
According to reports, advertisers will see an option later this month to make their ads bigger (but not bigger than the ads in the News Feed itself). Luckily this means there’ll be fewer of them, which makes sense if they plan on enlarging them all and presumably charging more for the size.
