Status Updates on Popular Facebook Page Now For Sale on eBay
How much is a Facebook stream impression worth? While we still hear Page transactions are occurring in the sub-$0.01/fan range, one popular generic Page owner is auctioning off the right to post a status update to his 300,000 Facebook fans on eBay.
The owner of the generic Facebook page I ♥ Being In Bed has put the right to “send out a message to ALL fans of my page of 265,000+ growing 20k+ new fans everyday your link or message once per week for 4 weeks.” The link and text can include a photo or video as well. Right now, the auction has no bids.
While we expect Facebook to eventually establish rules against this kind of thing in the long run, it goes to show that entrepreneurs are still actively experimenting with Facebook Page arbitrage.
