Facebook just took another giant leap into video that will raise alarm bells at YouTube

The company announced that it's testing out a long-rumored Suggested Video feature that will show Facebook users a bunch of related videos in a row after they've tapped one from their NewsFeed. Facebook says that it's starting to test putting ads between some of the clips, although the company didn't give any info about what the revenue break-down will be (Re/code's Kurt Wagner reported a 55% / 45% split, with the larger share going to creators, back in July).

Their spare, design-minded tableaux feature one or two actors against simple backdrops, accompanied by a cool selection of tunes. How Hillary Clinton would regulate Wall Street. Nothing exposes the chasm between the activist wing and the donor class of the Democratic Party like the regulation of Wall Street.

How Hillary Clinton would regulate Wall Street.

The desire to assail too-big-to-fail-banks energizes the left and has propelled Senator Elizabeth Warren and the presidential campaign of . But some of the party’s most prodigious donors come from the financial industry and don’t much care for its vilification. And Bill Clinton’s administration oversaw the deregulation on Wall Street. All that makes the question of how would regulate the financial sector a crucial test of her campaign to win the Democratic nomination.

With a plan she released Thursday, we got a first glimpse of how she would walk that balance beam.
