Facebook Testing “Sponsored Results” For Facebook Search
There’s no indication that Facebook will stop rolling out more advertising options anytime soon. A TechCrunch article announced that Facebook was testing a new Facebook Search ad titled “Sponsored Results.”

The ads look quite organic, but have the word “Sponsored” next to the listing:
Facebook is currently testing these ads, but TechCrunch reports that it is still very early, however we were unable to replicate the ads.
