Facebook to start cashing in on Messenger?
The answer is – yes, Facebook does plan to monetize its Messenger through payments. It is yet unclear exactly how these payments are going to work. During the Facebook Q2 2014 conference call, Mr. Zuckerberg made it a point that it will be a very thoroughly thought-out process, which is still in a very early stage. Facebook will not take the "cheap and easy approach" with ads, he says, but something that will bring sustainable profits for many years to come. See, Mr. Zuckerberg is not looking for a quick buck, instead – every move is made with the long-term in mind.
It would be interesting to see what the social network's creator has in mind, but no need to stand on the edge of your seats – he said it won't be coming in the near future.
