You, too may soon be able to bomb your friends with status updates that linger at the top of their newsfeeds. Facebook has begun rolling out a feature called "Promoted Posts," which will let regular users pay to have their status updates displayed more prominently just like brands do.

The service is in a limited test run and doesn't have a set price attached to it, but it's said to cost about $7 per post. Facebook users would get the option to promote a post in a link just below it next to the "Like," "Comment" and "Share" buttons.

In the future, all the social media attention your heart desires can be yours for a small fee.
