Can you imagine? You send a message to Mark Zuckerberg that costs you $100. Facebook is testing some extreme price points to filter spam messages with an increasing number of subscribers.
A story has blown from a blog post on Mashable that the Facebook users who are not in the list of Mark’s 16 million followers have to pay $100 to message Zuckerburg’s Inbox. The social network is also testing a service that allow people to pay $1 per message to provide a direct communication to non-friends inboxes. Now this situation can be termed as an “extreme price point” situation where messaging to CEO is too costly.
In this regard, Facebook explained in a blog post:
“If you want to send a message to someone you heard speak at an event but are not friends with, or if you want to message someone about a job opportunity, you can use this feature to reach their Inbox…”
“…For the receiver, this test allows them to hear from people who have an important message to send them.”
Apparently, this pricing model is currently not only for Facebook founder’s account but also for other profiles. A user named Scotty Ayres posted a screenshot which shows, the website is charging $100 for a message.
So when would you pay $100 for someone to read your message? Share in the comment box below the article, such a message you would like to send and who would be the recipient.
