Facebook has tried to monetize individual users by asking if they’d pay a few bucks to promote their posts so they can reach more friends. Now, according to a story in The Daily, Facebook is reportedly testing a model where users can pay a small fee to have classified ads in users’ news feeds. While the company confirmed to AllFacebook that the site is testing different ways to put ads in news feeds, it added that they will definitely not be classified ads.
