It seems Facebook is charging people $100 to send Mark Zuckerberg a message. Is this the firm's latest idea for a revenue stream, or is this, as a spokesperson claimed, an experiment in spam filtering? According to Mashable, anyone who isn't a friend of the Facebook founder gets a little blue box marked, "Send to Inbox for $100.00"--and this was tried from multiple accounts. When Fast Company attempted it, however, no such box appeared.No blue box to charge $100 appeared on my account either.
Hmm, that gives me an idea. ;-)
