Facebook are now testing out a pay-2-promote newsfeed posting system in New Zealand.

The added commercial factor is hardly surprising, especially considering the lucrative amount of money to be made if this went global which it probably will.

It sounds like a great way for local businesses to advertise on facebook and there is also the influential appeal to event organisers and charity pages.

I'm glad I rarely log into facebook anymore, give it a few years and it'll be plastered with noisy self promoting nuisance..

More so than usual anyway.

Great
I honestly hope Facebook meets the demise that MySpace met. I'm glad I left years ago as well.

Last thing we need besides reading what anyone does every 10 minutes, Is blowing up ads on the home page. Ugh.

somehow facebook has to justify it's predicted ipo value of $100 billion.

yes, that number is real. 100 billion dollars.

on friday may 18th, facebook is expected to have a $100 billion cash infusion by investors.

if you're wondering how a free service can pay back investors that kind of finance, look no more, until the days when facebook users will have to wait 45 seconds for a commercial to end before they are directed to their page.

I had a good LOL when I read what you typed.

Is that not what FB is all about?
Narcissm....arrogance Etc.
unless you mean, give it a few years and it'll be plastered with noisy corporate self promoting nuisance..
Even at that, there is not a company that does not have a FB page.
This is why I want a dislike button.

Same here. It's a kick in the pants for them too, because their advertising isn't really working if people can just block it.

This could, sort of, circumvent net-neutrality. Carriers could still allow access to their pipes on equal terms. But if websites create a tiered system for presenting content, you've effectively created a non-neutral internet.

Sure...everyone wants their opinion put out there in great big bolded letters. The question is, how many people want to be bothered by blazing bulletins that their obnoxious and attention-seeking friends paid for?

Me, I'm not interested. If your opinions and statuses are that compelling, you don't need to pay to keep them visible. I know people who post a status, and within half an hour, they have 20 comments and 8 likes. To me, that's pretty social. If I get a single comment, I consider it a good day.
