Facebook is testing a new product in the US that allows ordinary users to pay to promote their own status updates, marking a shift in the social network’s willingness to charge its users for a core service:

Would you pay to promote your status updates? What do you make of Facebook's plan?

No if I had to start paying to use Facebook I wouldn't continue to use it.

This sounds to me like it's geared toward business and fan pages... personal FB accounts wouldn't really care to "promote" their updates. But if I'm an actress, or Money Saving Mom... I might do it to get more fans.

I'd never pay... and just for the record... FB states in their FAQ section that they "WILL NEVER CHARGE FOR GENERAL USE"

If I had a business I would. It could be a huge advertisement for many companies.

Nope. Besides posting pictures every once in a while I rarely update my status anyway.

I would not pay.  I like Facebook, but not enough to pay for anything it offers.
