How to Rule Your Friends’ FB Feeds: Cash!
News out of New Zealand confirms that Facebook is rolling out a test to see if users will pay to dominate their friends’ news feeds by paying to highlight posts.
This, of course, sounds a bit outlandish, but according to Stuff based in New Zealand Facebook’s spokeswoman Mia Garlick confirmed it was a new “feature” in test mode.
“We’re constantly testing new features across the site. This particular test is simply to gauge people’s interest in this method of sharing with their friends,” Garlick said.
I’m not sure paying to highlight ones posts would take off, but then again, who knows. If your friends really want you to see something, undoubtedly some of them will pay for that service.
