fake news story is fake

How is it fake? Facebook even commented on it if you read the article.

Facebook said: ‘We’re constantly testing new features across the site.
This particular test is simply to gauge people’s interest in this method of sharing with their friends.’

Love the new 'fake' phenomenon in Internet comments. Yes, it's okay to be wary of things, but you need reasoning for it, otherwise it just makes you look stupid.
Y'know learn to examine and investigate stuff to see whether it's real or not. Automatically assuming things you think are unbelievable as false has exactly the same mentality as believing everything you see or hear.

In my experience the best thing about deleting your facebook account is how you get to tell everyone that you deleted your facebook account.

This is actually really cool. If you think about it, companies and game developers, etc, have Facebooks that you can "like" to keep updated. If this goes into effect, these companies and such can use this to get their statuses higher in your news feed so you notice that first.

Last time I deactivated mine it was a shocker to a few of my friends. Strange that it's become that way.

I don;t even use Facebook anymore. I'm going to just delete my account.

IMO Twitter is better. I can read posts, and not have to see that crap that I don't give a damn about.

They'd charge a lot more than $2 if they were targeting corporations with this feature. The price indicates they expect nearly EVERYONE to use it.
