Facebook has announced that it is starting a trial service that allows personal posts to be more visible…by paying $7.
Read the full article here on the Wall Street Journal online. (Also see within the article a link to the Facebook release.)
This service has been available for pages for a few months now, but it’s new to personal accounts. I’m thinking now we might formally begin to separate “classic” social media, whereby you connect with friends and other actual humans, and “commercial” social media where you connect with businesses. Where would government fit in?
What do you think? Is there ever a circumstance in which you’d pay for social media that has so far been free?
