FACEBOOK PLATINUM DEBUTS IN THE U.S., BY SUBSCRIPTION ONLY

imageMENLO PARK, California  (The Adobo Chronicles) – You’ve probably wondered why many of your friends or family have not been liking, or responding to, your Facebook posts. Well, it’s because they’re not seeing it.

By some kind of algorithm, Facebook determines who gets to see your posts, and it’s not a whole lot, unless, of course, you boost your posts by paying some dollars. You can complain all you want, but business is business. Like everyone else, Facebook has to make some money, right?

But there is some good news for netizens in the U.S. This weekend, Facebook will launch Facebook Platinum, which, if you subscribe to it, will increase the number of people that will see your posts. But it is not free.

Platinum subscription will cost you $100 per month, but you can be assured that every single post from you will reach a minimum of 5,000 people, whether or not they’re your FB friends. The Platinum version will only be available in the U.S.  Facebook says it will consider offering this premium service to other countries depending on how well this new initiative is received in America.

So, watch out for your invitation to subscribe to Facebook Platinum.  And once you have it, don’t leave home without it!
