Facebook may be planning to show you ads during your personal conversation with someone on Messenger, a freshly published patent has revealed.
The patent details Facebook's plan of placing targeting ads inside of Messenger conversations. The ads would come via a plug-in, allowing the app to show targeted ads based on the context of the conversation or location data, Mashable reports.
However, a Facebook spokesperson said that the patent was filed over four years ago and should not be taken as an indication of future plans.
