Well, the Monetization is picking up steam. Facebook wants to charge a buck to route a message out of "other" into your "inbox". This just means that if spammers will spam, they just need money to do it.
Let's see, looking among the links to post, if I can find an intelligent article...
This one's not bad: http://gadgets.ndtv....o-non-friends-308165
"Facebook contended that it was making a priority of developing ways to profit from posts shared between friends at the social network.
Facebook sparked a rebellion of Instagram users this week with proposed policy changes intended to improve the ability to make money from the smartphone photo sharing service it bought this year.
Instagram backed off the policy changes in the face of the backlash."
Edit: Fark's summary:
"Facebook: Okay, so we built this absurd mail system that often sends messages to an "other" folder that most people don't even know about. But no worries, we've got a new system where, for $1, users can make sure their mail goes to the right place"
