Facebook Charging $100 to Message Mark Zuckerberg

Jan 11, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

My first thought was, if Facebook can charge $100 to unconnected people to send a message to mark Zuckerberg, how much could it charge unconnected people to send a message to me? A dollar? My second thought way, why should Facebook keep all that money? And this made me contemplate a new internet economy where advertisers pay intended targets, not the communications medium. Could the money people spend advertsing to me ever make it worth investing the time to becoem someone they would be willing to pay to advertise to?
