Facebook Tries Out $1 Messaging Fee????

Filed under: Business BlitzFacebook

Facebook User Message Fees

Facebook is looking to make some changes.

After its IPO lost millions, it looks like the social network is looking for a different revenue stream — you!

Facebook is trying out a new system in a small market that will allow users to message people they aren't friends with for a nominal fee. Insiders say they're starting at one dollar and going from there.

Previously, you could choose privacy settings that kept you completely unavailable to unwanted strangers, but not anymore.

Facebook believes the fee will keep your inbox from filling up with spam. They're saving that for the ad space on the right, and there's also a limit on how many messages an individual user can receive.

Only time will tell if the practice will go global. If so, get ready to see some messages you weren't expecting and shell out some shekels to expand your circle of friends.

"Poking" users you don't know is still illegal in 49 states. Watch your backs, Idahoans! LOLz!

Redbox Vs. Netflix

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

redbox to take on netflix with web based service

For those of you who are sick of heading over to the local Shop Rite every time U want to rent a movie, but like the idea of $1 movie rentals…Redbox MAY have an answer for you.

On Thursday, Redbox announced their plans to go digital by next year. They plan to expand their roster of movies which they'll offer with the disc-free service.

Here's what Redbox's chief executive Mitch Lowe had to say about the company's plans:

"The disc business is still very strong and will continue to be for quite some time, but we need to get into this space to take advantage of the gradual transition to digital."

We're hoping they'll keep to the $1 rentals, especially if they want to provide competition for Netflix!

If they raise prices to typical Internet new-release prices, which are generally between $4 and $6, we're thinking nobody will get TOO excited.

What will U do when Redbox goes digital? If you're a Netflix subscriber, will U stay loyal or will U change to team Redbox?
