People, Oh I mean Strangers who insists you send private messages wanting to be your friend on Facebook, but you never saw in your life? Facebook is testing a new service that’ll charge for messages exchanged between strangers; I mean if it’s not your friend on Facebook, you’ll have to pay to send a message. According to The Verge, technology news blog, Facebook was testing the tool with a select group of users to see if the charging procedure is approved.
Currently, some messages from people with whom you’ve mutual friends’re sent to another folder within the profile, entitled Other, which many people don’t even know of the existence. With the new tool, for a fee of $1 or $2, who knows you can’t send a message to your inbox?
It also has a possibility to relax, because Facebook ensures that the private messaging between friends and friends of friends’ll continue to work for free, as we know it today. “Numerous observers and researchers’ve noted that the burden of a fee to the sender is the foremost effective way of avoiding unwanted messages and facilitate the delivery of messages that’re relevant and helpful,” said Facebook in its official Newsroom.
Experts believe that Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook is considering the tool with a new form of monetization and a way to reduce spammmmmmmmm. The announcement of the test doesn’t come at a good time for Facebook, as it faces loads of criticism about the new rules and Instagram’s terms of service, obtained by the Company earlier this year.
