Facebook may charge for popular posts


Facebook is considering to charge users for highlighting their important posts, as it is testing a new feature in New Zealand that would make comments more prominent on a user's newsfeed, The Sun reported.

Users in the New Zealand thought they were being scammed after they were presented with an option to "highlight" their posts for $2. Facebook later confirmed that they were "trialling" the feature, and charging was one of the options they were considering.

Spokeswoman Mia Garlick said: "We're constantly testing new features across the site... This particular test is simply to gauge people's interest in this method of sharing with their friends." Users who clicked on the option were offered the options to pay through Paypal or by credit card.
