Facebook has now added prices to users if you want to message popular people on it’s site without any announcement Facebook charges from $5 to even $15.
According to Buzzfeed Facebook is currently testing this in the US as prices are not set in stone,a different range of prizes have been tested also says Facebook but this does not seem to be the case.
Users under the age of 18 are not allowed to send paid messages,so people like Justin Beiber is still free considering his fan base age percentage.
With celebrities like Calvin Broadus or Snopp dogg,Vin Diesel there would be charges,this business plan to charge for messages is currently even in U.K and 36 other countries,$15 is a very ridiculous price just for a message,hopefully with the main percentage of Facebook’s users to be young teens there would not be cases of credit card thefts for payment,leave your comments below on what you think.
Recently Facebook apologized for banning a mom from the social network for posting pictures of her breastfeeding her child,she was actually kicked off twice for her action,because of Facebook’s nudity and pornography policy which states that,
Facebook has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michaelangelo’s David or family photos of a child breastfeeding.
Mom,Kristy Kemp who runs a Facebook page for breast feeding/mom talk and was banned when one of the page followers posted the picture above and was taken down immediately,later on she was reinstated and another did the same thing and posted another photo of her breastfeeding her child,Kemp was taken off Facebook for more than three days,all her efforts to contact Facebook failed until FOX 40 news got in touch with her.
Kemp says Facebook has apologized,Facebook said:
“A member of our team accidentally removed something you posted on Facebook. This was mistake [sic], and we sincerely apologize for this error.”
Kevin McGuire has finally gotten his wish,which may have taken over a year but still came through,if you remember then 18 year old leukemia survivor from February of 2012,when his sister had set up a Facebook page inviting Taylor Swift to join his at his prom,then Taylor could not make it,but instead invited him as her date to the 2012 Academy awards,which he accepted but on the date got sick from fever,but all said Kevin has met with Taylor,fingers crossed we do not hear a break up song about a leukemia survivor who broke her heart,check on photos below,as he says:
“I think Taylor is one of those people who you don’t really see that often. Classy, sweet and kind. Going through what we’ve been through…it’s symbolic, in a way. It started my chapter with my cancer. Now it’s behind me; I can close the book on it.”
