A popular social network is about to get a whole lot more like Facebook.
Yelping, which launched in 2011, is making a push into advertising with a new feature that lets you create an ad for your favourite items in a variety of categories and formats.
And the new features, which the company says it’s rolling out globally, include an ad on your Facebook news feed and a video ad on YouTube.
If you’re looking to get your ad on Yelps news feed, you can opt to see an ad that will appear for up to 20 seconds and contain your brand name and brand image.
This is similar to the video ads currently used on YouTube, which appear for around three seconds and are only available to subscribers.
You can opt out of the video ad and have the ad disappear for a period of time if you don’t want to watch it.
The same goes for the banner ads you see on the top of the homepage.
But Yelpping also includes video ads for certain categories, such as news, fitness, health and fashion, and those are only shown to people who subscribe to the Yelpa network.
The ad on the homepage will appear as an advertisement for a specific category, but the Yomp ad on top of it will only show the top 10 most viewed articles from the relevant categories, and will show the full list of items.
As for the video and banner ads, they appear in the top left-hand corner of your News Feed, with the banner ad at the top right-hand side.
This is a great step for Yomping, because it allows users to opt out from the ad and see a different ad in their News Feed if they want to.
If you opt out, you’ll also get a chance to see a video or banner ad for another category.
The Yomps website says that this feature will be available in the US, UK, Canada and Mexico by the end of the year.
You also have the option of using your existing Yompo account to add your ad, which is a bit of a hassle if you want to keep it on your own page.
Yelping’s new ad product allows users create an account to make ads for their favorite things, such the top-rated books, music and films.
It’s also possible to customize the ads to appear differently depending on your search term.
You’re able to choose between adverts with titles like “Top 10” or “Top 5” or a selection of titles with similar words such as “fun” or the like.
You can also opt out entirely of ads.
In this case, Yompa will display the video or the banner without the content, and you’ll only see the ad for that category.
There’s no word on when the new ad products will launch in the rest of the world, but Yompeas plans to roll them out to users in the coming months.
