Facebook tests $1 fee for inbox Spamming. I mean access

Saw on C|Net via reddit this morning that Facebook is testing a $1 fee for inbox access. Note that this isn’t for you to send a facebook message to your friend, this is to allow others to message you even if you’re not connected (remember that on facebook only your friends can send you messages).

Translation: “We’re going to allow big companies to pay us a wheelbarrow full of cash to spam you to hell and back.”

This combined with the recently announced auto play video ads coming soon, might be time to drop Facebook. I thought they were making a ton of money already, but I guess greed begets greed begets more ads.
