Facebook Charging $7 To Promote Status Updates

Does It Work?


Congratulations, Facebook, 1 billion users continue to freely give you targeted information with an enormous value to advertisers around the world.

And you celebrate this feat by charging the user?

In addition to launching a mediocre “chairs” campaign for their first ad campaign -- Facebook launched a new platform, allowing the user (you) to pay to have your messages reach more friends. Yes, you heard me correctly, the network that has longed stated 'it will always be free,' is now charging to promote your own status updates.

So, how does this work? »

Think Big Baltimore Asked, "As an Entrepreneur – How Do You Think Big?"


think big article

Six years ago, I was having lunch with entrepreneur and relationship author, Jess McCann. The conversation turned to the Powerball jackpot, which at the time had reached a record-high $365 million. I’ll never forget McCann’s statement, “I’d never want to win the lottery.”

At first, I thought she was sarcastically poking fun at how everyone would start calling – asking for financial support. No, Jess McCann meant it; “I wouldn’t want something I didn’t earn,” she said.

For the next five years, her statement stuck with me. It was one of the most ridiculous declarations that I had ever heard...

Who wouldn’t want to win $365 million dollars?

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, there are many ways to celebrate here in Baltimore; ranging from a romantic dinner at Charleston to learning all about animal reproduction at the Maryland Zoo: "Sex at the Zoo."
