Facebook could be making $US1bn from ads

6 07 2009

Caroline McCarthy reports on an interview with Facebook Board Member Marc Andreessen.

Advertisers will be interested in the following comments:

“If Facebook worked the ad-sales front a bit harder, Andreessen added in the interview, revenue could already be over a billion.

But Facebook has never taken kindly to traditional display advertisements, choosing instead to experiment with “engagement ads” integrated into the social-networking experience–a product it may potentially extend into Facebook Connect’s participating sites, which now number over 10,000.”
