Facebook tests new feature where users can pay to get noticed

Facebook is testing a new option to help users get noticed by their friends, the Daily Mail has reported. The 'Highlight' feature will allow users pay $2 to have one of their posts appear to more friends. It is the latest in a sequence of money-making efforts from the social network giant in an effort to reassure investors before its flotation on the stock market. "We're constantly testing new features across the site. This particular test is simply to gauge people's interest in this method of sharing with their friends," Facebook said.
