Facebook’s Highlight: Pay to make your status updates visible to more friends

Every time you update your status, it will be visible to only 12 % of your friends. Facebook is testing out a new service in which you can pay a few dollars and make your status update visible to more number of friends. This feature only allows the average users of facebook to highlight their important status updates and not pages or businesses. There is also a free version of Highlight to check whether there are any users who are interested in the service.

This feature shows that facebook is ready to make money a aggressively which may please the investors a little bit. However it might not be a good way to earn for facebook as the services provided by facebook have always been free and now new paid service involved could break the deal for many users especially for the younger and less financially equipped users.
