facebook fee

If you thought Facebook advertising couldn't become any more irritating, think again. The world's largest social network is reportedly in the experimental/early testing stages of a new program that would allow users to bypass the default Facebook Messages spam folder when contacting people that they don't know. Currently, when a user or brand attempts to contact someone that they don't know, the messages they send are delivered to the recipient's "Other" folder in their Facebook Messages inbox.


In the updated Facebook Messages system, those users are given a new option. Rather than having their message fall into the user's "Other" folder a place that few ever want/remember to check with any regularity the group of Facebook users now have an option to spend $1 to have their message delivered straight to the recipient's inbox. And, from the sounds of things, it doesn't matter how high your privacy settings are.

For now, Facebook claims that the $1 fee to send messages straight to a user's inbox will be limited to a single usage each week, and brand's won't have the option of using the new feature just yet. The company also cited unidentified researchers' theories, claiming Facebook's $1 fee could cut down on the number of unwanted messages received each day, as justification for testing out the new program.



You may recall that Facebook purchased Instagram App for $1 Billion. However, Facebook did promise to keep Instagram as a separate entity and not fold it into Facebook proper, but that doesn't mean that there won't be some data sharing as time goes on. And, that time is coming pretty soon as Instagram has shown off its new privacy policy with does include sharing data with Facebook.

The change in the Instagram privacy policy comes after Facebook had made similar changes to allow for data-sharing between itself and Instagram. With the changes to Instagram's policy, Instagram will be able to "share user content and your information," including cookies, location data, device identifiers, and other information with Facebook-owned companies.


However, Instagram says on its Offiical blog that "nothing has changed about your photos' ownership or who can see them," which is great to hear given that Facebook's copyright claims on photos is overly broad.
