Facebook Will Let People You Don't Know Message Your Inbox For $1

Speechless.....


http://mashable.com/2012/12/20/faceb...-for-messages/

If you start noticing a few more messages in your Facebook inbox in the coming weeks from people you don't know, here's why.

Facebook announced Thursday that it is testing a new option to charge users a one-time fee of $1 to send a message to another user's inbox on the network who they aren't friends with.

Currently, if you send a Facebook message to someone you're not connected to, it may end up in the Other tab, an oft-overlooked subsection of the inbox that basically serves as a spam folder, depending on whether you have mutual connections. With the new option, however, you would be able to pay a premium to ensure that the message ends up in the main inbox where it's likely to be seen by the recipient.

A Facebook rep told Mashable that users will have the option to mark the incoming message as spam and move it to the Other tab, which means the sender will be unable to reach their inbox afterwards. However, if the recipient doesn't take any action, the sender will be able to continue messaging that user's inbox an unlimited number of times after paying the one-time fee.

"Today we’re starting a small experiment to test the usefulness of economic signals to determine relevance," Facebook said in a blog post. "This test will give a small number of people the option to pay to have a message routed to the Inbox rather than the Other folder of a recipient that they are not connected with."

Facebook is billing the change as an attempt to crack down on spam by seeing if "imposing a financial cost on the sender" serves as a deterrent to sending unwanted messages. Yet, it seems just as likely that it could lead to an increase spam, as anyone from a marketer to your ex-girlfriend could potentially use the option to flood your inbox with unwanted messages.

For Facebook, the move appears to be a thinly veiled attempt at testing out a potential new revenue source. LinkedIn offers a similar option, which lets users with premium accounts message those outside their network. Facebook has tried to monetize anything and everything on the site, recently announcing an option for average users to pay $7 to promote a post on the social network so that more people see it.

The new pay-to-message option was announced as part of a larger set of changes to Facebook Messages, including new filtering options to determine whether you mostly see messages from friends or from friends and related contacts you may know.

MySpace needs to reinvent itself with a new name and less suckage. There needs to be a social network that limits the age groups of people allowed to access and sign up. Oh wait that WAS Facebook until greed kicked in.

This, there isn't anything remotely close that can take down Facebook.

I think it'll be a long time before something does. Then again we did say that about Myspace.

Spammers aren't going to spend $1 on each target. The cost would be astronomical. The entire concept behind their strategy is extremely cheap high volume marketing.

Wow. I never even noticed the other tab before today. Crazy. Whatever. Doesn't bother me at all. Send me stupid messages. Unless they make it where you can pay $5 and disable my ability to delete it, I'm not going to worry.

I had successfully deleted my facebook about 3 mo before I moved to Chicago and after I moved about 2 mo later I realized I needed it to keep in contact with some family.

To delete you have to go through this page:

https://www.facebook.com/help/delete_account

and then you have to not login for 90 days

Then the account is gone for good

I had no idea there was an 'other' box, so I just went and looked. Among various spam, there was a year-old message from a guy I kind of knew in high school. He was asking me to be a reference for him for a job he was applying for.

What?

I've seen this guy one time in the past thirty years, which was at our high school reunion last year. We didn't even talk to each other then, just nodded and said hi.

He was a nice fellow and I hope he got the job, but that's kind of odd.
