Facebook to Charge For Message Delivery to Strangers

Facebook on 20th December, 2012 began testing in United States (US), the probability of charging one dollar to guarantee that messages from strangers make it into inbox’s of intended recipients at the social network.

Currently, if you send a Facebook message of unsure  interest to a recipients, it normally goes into an “other” folder. It is often the unnoticed section of the inbox that basically serves as a spam folder, depending on whether you have mutual connections.

Charging for such messages could help discourage spammers and might be useful in certain situations.

For example, if you want to send a message to someone you heard speak at an event but are not friends with, or if you want to message someone about a job opportunity, you can use this feature to reach their inbox

Facebook said in an online post. According to the reports of DNA India,

Users will have the option to mark the incoming message as spam and move it to the ‘Other’ tab, which means the sender will be unable to reach their inbox afterwards. However, if the recipient doesn’t take any action, the sender will be able to continue messaging that user’s inbox an unlimited number of times after paying the one-time fee.
