Autoplaying Facebook video ads could be coming to a News Feed near you from Thursday

Leaked documents have already shown that Facebook is in the verge of introducing video adverts to its social network, and now it seems that users may be seeing video ad spots in their News Feed from as early as Thursday this week.

That’s according to a Wall Street Journal report (paywalled) claiming that the company will announce its video ad service on Tuesday, with ads rolling out two days later.

Ads will autoplay to users but it remains unclear how long they will be permitted to run for. The Journal has no info on that, but it says Lions Gate Entertainment will be among the first to use the medium.
