    Posts are the same as usual. They still show up on the news feed of about 10-20% of your fans.

    The promoted posts paid feature just makes it so your posts show up at more than 10-20% of your fans, as well as friends of your fans.

    Also, promoted posts can be a good thing if marketed correctly, especially for small business owners.

    They are trying new ways to make money (well.. who doesn't?) but I highly doubt they will charge people for opening / having an account (of course, you probably were being sarcastic).

    It's a sensible model. Posts wouldn't be seen by 100% of your fans anyway unless you were to constantly be posting it.

    Thread title is misleading.

    Back in 2008-9 All of Your Status Updates could be seen by Your Friends on their HomePage
    Then Facebook Brought a Stupid Algorithm to Prefer feeds from Pages and Friends You are most likely to like that means most of status updates from your homepage were skipped
    Then Facebook Started making money out of it
