Pay to Promote Your Status Comes to Facebook

Featured BlogHer Network Post

There have been more changes at Facebook as of late, and people have had a lot to say about the new pay-to-promote system which is currently in testing modeNot Super... Just Mom has a post about both the sponsored content showing up in her feed as well as noticing that views to her status updates have dropped perhaps because she is not paying to have her words read.  Though she also raises the other fair point -- what Facebook is essentially doing is asking people to pay to advertise their words, just as any brand would pay for advertising to get knowledge of their product to the consumer.

But you, the reader/liker/Facebook user who has opted in to seeing my mundane ramblings in your news feed? You may not be seeing them. In fact, I am not even seeing all of them.

That’s right. The Facebook updates for this blog are not showing in my personal news feed. And believe me, I’m interested in and subscribed to and have opted to see my blog’s posts in my news feed. And yet I’m not seeing them.

Have you noticed any changes with your feed? What are your feelings on the new pay-to-promote and sponsored content in Facebook?
