An advertising model being tested by the leading online social network is part of a 'Suggested Videos' feature designed to recommend clips for people based on snippets they tune into in News Feed at Facebook.

"We're running a new suggested videos test, which helps people discover more videos similar to the ones they enjoy," a Facebook spokesperson said.
"Within suggested videos, we will be running a monetization test where we will show feed-style video ads and share revenue with a group of media companies and video creators," the spokesperson said.

Suggested videos are related to what is watched by members of the social network, perhaps focused on the same topics or posted by similar publishers. The feature is being tested for some people accessing the social network with iPhones, according to Facebook.

Revenue from ads appearing in the Suggested Videos feed will be shared, with 55 percent of the money going to those providing the content, according to Facebook.
The California-based social network said that it is not taking any money in from advertising while it tinkers with the formula for serving up video marketing messages.
