Facebook's Adding Search as an Ad Placement Option, Providing New Opportunities



Facebook is 'running a small test' of ads in search results as it seeks new options to help offset the slowdown in overall revenue growth. 



As reported by TechCrunch, Facebook will look to re-introduce search ads, which it originally tried back in 2012.

Facebook hasn't shared screenshots of the new ad type, but they are going into limited circulation from this week.
