I think its fun. I'm excited for the people who pay money to get their post up, and I block them because they are always posting smile.gif

No one in their right mind would pay $2 a pop just to have their "hehe im in the shower *bubble*bubble*bubble*" on the top of everyone's news feed. I'm certain Facebook is using this to target large corporations as a method of advanced Facebook advertising. For $2 a post they can reach out to thousands of people who liked their pages (Windows, Apple, etc) I think it would be interesting to be able to like a page for say a movie like "The Avengers" and have a yellow notice on your wall letting you know it just came out for sale on DVD or something.

Wrong. You'd be amazed at what people will spend their money on.

I supposed you haven't seen those "Like and subscribe to receive 2OOO+ friend requests" all over Facebook with 18K+ likes? I'm sure most of the people who subscribe and like to get "2OOO+" friend requests would pay $2 to get their post on the top of peoples news feeds because they just want the attention.

You are probably correct about it being targeted at large corporations though.

True, but among Facebook friends, your post will be seen by all of your buddies either way. Pointless to spend $2 to put a highlight around it. If you got friends on your Facebook using this for stupid shart, simple just delete them. 99% chances are its someone you don't even know in real life to begin with.

I have, those don't pertain to non-friends so it wouldn't be a problem for me or anyone else.
