New look for Facebook ads
In the coming months, Facebook ads in the right hand column will be getting a new look.
Facebook says the new format will make the ads more visually consistent with the ads that appear in News Feed. They will be larger, but there will be fewer of them.
Facebook moving chats service to Messenger app
Facebook will soon force all users to send messages through its Messenger app by eliminating the chat features from its Apple and Android versions of the app.
To continue sending messages on mobile, people will need to install the Messenger app.
The company will alert users multiple times before the feature disappears.
