Facebook had more than 425 million mobile users in December. So far, it makes zero money from those people.That’ll change soon.

Today Facebook announced that a new ad unit – called Reach Generator – will take posts from brand pages and stick them in users’ news feeds on the desktop AND on mobile.

Ads on desktop, mobile, and logout screens will all be sold as one single package.

Consider one big hole in Facebook’s business closed.
