Facebook is charging $100 to send a message to Mark Zuckerberg
How badly do you want to get in contact with Mark Zuckerberg? Maybe you have a genius idea that you want to share with the Facebook founder and CEO. Or maybe you want to let him know exactly what you think of the most recent changes to privacy it hasmade or what it is doing to Instagram? Just a thought.
Whatever the case is Mashable is reporting that Facebook, ever more eager to make a buck or two, is offering the chance to send a message to Zuckerberg all for the princely sum of $100.
It isn’t really the kind of thing that you expect Facebook or Zuckerberg to be doing — unless you view of it is more like that of Ad Age, which recently called the social network firm the equivalent of a “self absorbed, petulant brat”.
Whatever the case it doesn’t strike us as the greatest idea. We could be wrong. Maybe there are hundreds, nay, thousands of you out there ready to part with your hard earned cash.
“If you try to send founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg a message on Facebook,Mashable discovered Thursday, the social network may offer to keep the message out of his “Other” Inbox — for a cool $100.
“In our tests from multiple accounts, it appeared to be the case that users only get this message if they’re not one of Zuck’s 16 million followers. That, however, could still be coincidental.
“Keen Facebook observers will recognize this as a variant on the $1 pay-to-message plan that the social network has been experimenting with for months. The company indicated at the time that it would be experimenting with other prices, so it’s possible we’re starting to see the fruits of that,” Mashable reports.
