Facebook Tests Fee-Based Post Promotion

Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) users will be able to see how well they promote themselves, events or other important information across the social network. But it will cost money - about $7 per for each user who wants to see how a message has done in the Facebook news feed. According to The Telegraph:

Facebook's plan is to introduce the service in the US and it is unknown whether a similar initiative will be rolled out in the UK.

The company has already launched promoted posts for Facebook pages and has begun tests for its general users in New Zealand.

The initiative follows in the footsteps of Twitter, which offers promoted tweets to users.
