(KCEN) -- How much would you pay to reach out to a stranger on Facebook?
The social networking site is testing out a plan to charge people to send messages to folks outside their network.
Most important messages go straight to your Facebook inbox, but there's a second class of messages, including potential spam, that the site puts in a little-known "other" folder.
The company will now allow people to avoid the dreaded "other" folder and have their messages show up directly in the recipient's inbox, if they pay a fee.
The cost to send one message that way will be a dollar.
In a post announcing the changes, Facebook points out that this could be helpful for people who want to contact someone about a job and that charging could also help cut down on unwanted spam.
