Facebook: More Ads Coming

The social network began rolling out a new kind of advertisement for select users Tuesday which will show up in the main news feed, according to a report from TechCrunch. Prior to this, Facebook's advertisements appeared on the side of the page under the label "Sponsored Stories."

Aside from their placement front and center on the page, this tweak may end up blurring the lines between the promotional and personal content in your feed. As the tech blog points out, Facebook has changed the name from Sponsored Stories to Featured Stories, a subtle change that could mask the fact that the posts have been paid for.
