Would you ever pay Facebook $7 to "promote" a post?

No way, and unless it was something extraordinarily time sensitive (ex., tsunami will arrive in 12 minutes, call Ironman ASAP), I would think it was an incredible example of narcissism from an individual.  My reaction would be even more negative if a business did it, because it would take advantage of my having "friended" a company,and make the message they chose more important than everything from my actual, living breathing friends.  I expect we will see more of this type of thing with Facebook, as the company faces pressure to maximize all revenue streams.  Respect for users is not a fiduciary duty of Facebook management, they owe shareholders their primary duty.  Welcome to the world of publicly held corporations.
