Fox Sports becomes lastest to monetize Facebook videos For months, Facebook has been pitching publishers on the wonders of posting their media — especially their videos — directly to Facebook in exchange for a split on ad revenue. How Facebook planned to advertise against those videos has remained mostly a mystery, however. But Facebook recently expanded its publisher video initiative and, in doing so, revealed one of the ways it is planning to help publishers earn revenue from videos posted directly to the platform.

Magnet URI scheme The Magnet URI scheme, defines the format of magnet links, a de facto standard for identifying files by their content, via cryptographic hash value rather than by their location. Although magnet links can be used in a number of contexts, they are particularly useful in peer-to-peer file sharing networks because they allow resources to be referred to without the need for a continuously available host, and can be generated by anyone who already has the file, without the need for a central authority to issue them. This makes them popular for use as "guaranteed" search terms within the file sharing community where anyone can distribute a magnet link to ensure that the resource retrieved by that link is the one intended, regardless of how it is retrieved.
