@dalton True, although I'm wondering how effective they would be?
Ads on a YouTube video make sense as they're mainly for entertainment.
Facebook videos are more personal so it would be weird seeing diaper ads on a baby video.
@reneritchie@dalton More or less the same here with the addition of some ex-coworkers who don’t exist here or even on Twitter. Which always amazes me considering they should know more about the Web. :)
@dalton I've been hanging on to that FB account only to keep in touch with family who can't seem to manage learning any other technology. This would truly kill it for me. Bring it on, I'd love the push out of their service.
Another reason Facebook is....

@dalton Aside: Ironic to me, I think the biz should be charged if you only watch the 5sec, and *not* be charged if you watch the whole ad; more in line with Gabe Newell/Valve's value-added concept. If the ad becomes content, it's making users stick around.
@33mhz That would make sense... but the Ad industry is an insane sanctioned Ponzi/Pyramid scheme with wavy hand numbers. Doing the SiriusXM and Internet radio apps gave me disappointing insight into the ad world. Consumers tune them out every way possible.

@cycoder in the early days of Radio/TV ads, there was no way to track, so you had to take a lot on faith. Counter-intuitively, adding sophisticated tracking has made it more difficult to decide if an ad performs. Selling the “Mad Men” story was easier
