Facebook Begins Rolling Out Sponsored Comments


Facebook Sponsored Comment Ad

Facebook on Friday began offering advertisers a new option for their ads, moving forward companies can post questions as a sponsored post. As users answer those questions they become part of their news feed, allowing for more in-depth engagement among friends.
