(Newser) – Hey, Facebook users: Want to get in touch with Mark Zuckerberg himself? Well, you can, but it may cost you $100. Mashable finds that users who try to send the CEO a message may see two options: Send it to his "other" folder—a zone for less important messages—or send it directly to his inbox, and ante up a fee of one Benjamin. It looks like the options pop up only for those who aren't among Zuck's 16 million Facebook followers, Mashable notes. Facebook—which is, of course, on the hunt for revenue—says it's "testing some extreme price points to see what works to filter spam." It last month started testing a $1 fee to message non-friends.

My 60 year old cousin is a facebook addict, she spends most of her life on it, gets up every hour at night to check it, has cut off contact with anyone who isn't on facebook, and has even started to neglect her horses and dogs. Zuckerf@ck has invented something worse than heroin and one of these days will pay the price for his evil ways.
