Would you pay a hundred bucks to message Mark Zuckerberg?

http://xfinity.comcast.net/articles/finance/20130111/US.TEC.Facebook.Messages/

Would you pay $100 to message Mark Zuckerberg? Facebook says it's testing some "extreme price points" to let users pay to have their messages seen by people who are not their friends.

The tech blog Mashable reported early Friday that some users trying to message Zuckerberg are offered the option to pay $100 to ensure that their missive reaches the Facebook CEO's inbox. Without paying, the message would likely end up in Zuckerberg's "other" message folder, an oft-overlooked purgatory between the spam folder and the inbox.

Facebook says it's testing the "extreme" prices to "see what works to filter spam. The company is also testing a service that lets people pay $1 per message to route communications to non-friends' inboxes.

Zuckerberg has more than 16 million followers on the site.


I most certainly would not. Since I'm in the area, it would be cheaper for me to just head up there and set his lawn on fire.

2. An innovation born out of narcissism

 

Some guy at Facebook said, "Hey, we're so special I bet peons will pay to talk to us".

A few lines of code later, and we will see proof of him being correct

7. Nope, I don't find CEOs interesting or "sexy" in the least

 

Not even the guy who started Apple, who everyone seems to have a fetish for or hold in awe. (yes, I know he has passed away, but that hasn't stopped the obsession, from what I have seen on the internet)

8. I swear I read that as

"Would you pay a hundred bucks to massage Mark Zuckerberg?" I was wondering why he wasn't the one paying since he would get the massage. Sorry, it's just not my day today.
