Facebook has rolled out a new product, named “Highlight,” that allows users to pay a $2 cash fee if they want their status updates to be more prominent in their friends’ news feeds. Here’s what the new app looks like:
Want to amplify your status update? That’ll be $1.80!
Yep, Facebook is testing a new product called “Highlighted Posts” that essentially creates a small classified ad (similar to Craigslist).
The fee for using Highlighted Posts apparently runs from $0-$2 and users can pay by PayPal or credit card.
The new feature appears to be in limited beta test in New Zealand; and, it’s one of many products Facebook is testing right now!
What do you think? Will you shell out a couple of bucks to amplify certain posts?
(Remember, on average only 16% of your fans see your posts in their news feed… that percent is likely higher for how many friends see posts from your personal profile. For premium business clients, Facebook is launching “Reach Generator” which guarantees your fan page posts reach the majority of your fans: 75% reach vs. the average of 16%).
