Facebook Tests Prominent Paid Option to User Posts

The Facebook already shown on top of the news feed some of the most shared links at certain times and occasionally there also appears a post from any company that paid to appear in this field. Now a user of the social network found that Facebook can allow in the future that any prominent member of their own posts, causing them to appear on top of the news feed of your friends.

This option was discovered by a member of Facebook in New Zealand and confirmed to the BBC by a spokesman for the social network. According to the spokesman, “this test serves only to measure people’s interest in this method of sharing with friends.” The screen shot was sent by the user to Stuff.co.nz site.

The price of making posts were promoted was not fixed, ranging from $ 2 to 50 cents and could be paid by credit card or PayPal. According to the user, it was possible to highlight published posts or photos and those they were highlighted were with a yellow background.

Of course, like all the news of Facebook, it is being tested with a small group of users and is no guarantee that it will become a feature for everyone. But it is interesting to see the network testing other methods to get some change.

The question is: would you pay $ 2 to highlight a post on Facebook to your friends?
