    Facebook is going to start paying you for all those videos you upload on Facebook soon but don't get too excited as there's a twist in this tale. A very painful and annoying one. If you're willing to compromise or probably loose your fans for some extra cash then you shouldn't have a problem.

    Remember those pre-roll ads on YouTube that usually start before the video you want to view and can only be skipped after 5 seconds?

    I've got good news for you then, Mark Zuckerberg also hates them.

    The bad news? Well, Facebook is planning to introduce another type of advertising that might prove to be very annoying.

    I'm talking about mid-roll ads. These ads are coming to Facebook videos, and they will interrupt what you're watching to display an ad.

    The mid-roll ads will be shown after you've watched a video for just 20 seconds. Thankfully it'll be will only be available for videos that are at least up to 2 minutes long, but they still have the potential to make people stop watching Facebook videos after the initial 20 seconds.
    Currently, Mid-roll ads have already been tested for live videos, but the new rollout will now include all videos on Facebook. Facebook will be sharing ad revenue with the content creators, keeping 45% of all sales for itself - just like YouTube does.

    For now, this still in the testing phase, but if it proves successful then expect most videos you see on Facebook to become ad-infested pretty soon.

    I think it should have an opt in option due to privacy issues on Facebook. Facebook would not want to infringe on user privacy by adding ads without permission from users.

    This is the first chance many publishers will have at monetizing their Facebook videos. Facebook users are already watching 100 million hours of video per day, so this will also bag the social network some nice amounts of cash.

    This is a great development by Mark Zuckerberg and I bet some viewers won't mind about the adverts,it is just about pressing the fast forward button. Shikena!
    When I read the news, Mark Angel comedy came to mind, because the pay from people watching their videos on Facebook would go a long way to helping their comedy ministry.

    It shouldn't be hard to believe, YouTube is already doing it and if Facebook wants to follow suit, it is to the benefit of those who upload videos especially the comedy ones.

    @Amara..... The thing just be say even if them actualize that, earning from those crooks would not be an easy task because I am not sure they will pay for every single video uploaded but only those that meets the requirements that they will want and I guess the pay would not also be enticing.

    Guess you guys should understand that Facebook don't mean to say they are paying you to overload their server with videos which in 30 seconds could amount to about 1 thrillion Gigabytes from the likes of eyor1 :D

    If you understand how Youtube video ads works then you'll understand Facebook video ads too.

    If you upload video to Facebook server, you don't get paid for it until it is watched by someone. And not just that, u still don't get paid until the someone watch the video and not skip the advert.

    Where do you think Facebook will make the money from if you upload all sorts of video that doesn't affect humanity on their server. You upload video of how u go to toilet every morning and you expect to be paid? You see a video on Facebook, you watch it and when it got to advertisement you skipped it and you expect the owner of the video to get a cut of the money.

    The money Facebook is giving to you guys is coming from people who paid for their advert to be displayed for fb members. So for each advert you skip, the more pay you miss.
