If there's one thing that sucks about Facebook, it's the paucity of advertisements. We need more! And we need them in real time. Luckily, TechCrunch reports, we're in luck—more live Facebook ads are headed our way today.

The ads will appear in the controversial Facebook "ticker," where you see constant details of who's tagging whom, Spotify action, photo comments, and other social detritus. And now, "sponsored stories"—ads. And some of the ads will appear under the guise of news about your friends—so and so are playing X game. That means you'll get ads on the sidebar, sides in the ticker, and of course the fact that your entire life is turned into advertising data for Facebook's partners. Ads! On the other hand, free, great website you choose to use. [TechcCrunch]
