3.3: Exodus

December 19, 2012

Rumor has it that Facebook will start auto playing video ads on its website and mobile apps, according to CNET and AdAge.

Honestly that isn’t something that I see a whole lot of people accepting, and I imagine that quite a few members will work to find other ways to stay in touch with friends. While nothing is confirmed until Facebook confirms, this ad scheme sounds like something that Facebook would do.

If this auto-playing video ad thing does come to pass, it will be remembered as the event that started to kill Facebook. It might be one of Facebook’s worst ideas in the history of the company; even worse than when it turned the enter/return button on our keyboards into the “post comment” button.

Where’s a violin so we can be prepared to play Facebook a sad song?
