Facebook is taking aim at brands' TV-ad budgets with a move to bring video advertising to users' news feeds. The video-ad product, which will likely be introduced in the first half of 2013, is expected to feature auto-playing video clips that expand to fill much of the available on-screen real estate. The clips will likely be capped at 15 seconds, which could lead brands to experiment with shorter videos elsewhere on the Web.
