Facebook Tests Non-Social Page Like Ads On Mobile Platform, But Not Via Apps

Facebook expanded its test of non-social page like ads to its mobile platform, but users of its mobile applications will not be affected yet, as the test is limited to inventory on m.facebook.com, according to sister blog Inside Facebook.

Inside Facebook reported that the ads contain headlines, body copy, and images, and can be seen by any users, regardless of whether they or their friends have liked the advertisers’ pages.

According to Inside Facebook, the social network is working on expanding its test of these non-social page like ads to its mobile apps within the next few months.
