Ad breaks are now available for eligible partners in Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam and English, Facebook said at its "Creator Day" event


Facebook on Friday introduced new monetisation tools for video creators in India including ad breaks -- short ads that people can include in their eligible videos to earn money.

Ad breaks are now available for eligible partners in Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam and English, Facebook said at its "Creator Day" event.

Ad breaks can only be included in videos at least three minutes long. Creators can choose their own placements or turn off ad breaks for individual videos.

"The biggest trend that Indian digital industry has witnessed in consumer behaviour, is rapid growth in the adoption of video. We're seeing consumer videos exploding on our platform and today video has become one of the biggest drivers of engagement growth on Facebook," said Paresh Rajwat, Head of Product for Video at Facebook.

"Besides community content, where people share their experiences, we are a platform where professional content creators come to find an audience and also earn money," Rajwat said.

Facebook also introduced at the event "Brand Collabs Manager", a tool that helps brands find creators to collaborate with for branded content opportunities on the social networking platform.

With Brand Collabs Manager, the creators can quickly create a portfolio so that brands can learn more about them and get in touch easier for brand partnerships.

It will be available in India in 2019, Facebook said.
