Attention Whores: Facebook Offers New $2 Feature To Get Your Friends Attention

•, Kashmir Hill
 Facebook has come up with a way to commoditize that terrible feeling of being ignored by your friends. The social network is testing out a new service, reports Stuff, that would allow Facebook users to pay to have their status updates, photos, or links featured in their friends’ feeds, so that they appear higher and stick around longer.  For just $2, you could make sure everyone really does know about your annoying airline experience or the weird guy you spotted on the subway this morning!
Unfortunately, this feature is not generally available at the moment. It’s being tested among Facebook’s New Zealand users, a “market where Facebook seems to test features it doesn’t want too many people to know about,” notesTechCrunch.
