3 Buzzing Social Media Stocks: Facebook’s New Videos, Zynga’s Settlement, Groupon Founder Talks Twitter
Facebook (NASDAQ:FB): Facebook is initiating a trial of auto-playing videos in users’ news feeds, potentially leading the way for video ads in the near future. The videos play silently; but clicking on them will enable the soundtrack if the user so desires. ”At first, this feature will be limited to videos posted by individuals, musicians, and bands. Over time, we’ll continue to explore how to bring this to marketers in the future.” A spokeswoman said.
