Facebook is trying a new system for filtering your inbox messages; they plan to charge strangers $1 to message you. Up until this point, strangers would be able to send you messages for free, cluttering up your inbox.

With this new system in place, Facebook hopes that the clutter will be reduced.

They hope that if a person is willing to pay $1 to write you a message, it must be important. This may not be such a bad idea, but then again, maybe it’s just a ploy to make the company giant more money.

But how much money could a scheme like this actually bring?
