If you’re like millions of other people around the world, you’ve been hearing for years that the social media giant, Facebook is going to charge account holders for its services. Well, despite the number of media outlets that have confirmed that to be a rumor, there may be a little truth to it.
Facebook is currently testing a new option to charge users in the United States a one-time fee of $1 to send a private message to someone’s inbox who is not their friend. Once the fee is paid, the user will be able to send as many messages to that person’s inbox as they please. Instead of the messages landing in the “other” section of the inbox, it will appear in the receiving user’s primary inbox folder.
