It goes without saying that the social media giant, Facebook, has made a pretty noticeable shift in priorities as of late. Yes, it still retains its mission of connecting every single person in the world. However...
Now, YOU CAN ADVERTISE YOUR OWN CONTENT!
Does this jive with the above mission? Or, does this more align with the goal of appeasing Wall Street?
As reported in multiple places (here being one example), Facebook announced that individual users will soon be able to promote their own posts to the News Feed of friends they might not otherwise reach. All for a mere $7.00 per post (pure profit for Facebook by the way).
What will you see more of?
Probably babies, engagements, weddings, and pyramid scheme invites.
