That sounds like an April fools joke. I hope they start charging everyone for everything. Then we can all move to the much better Myspace. That's where it's at now.

Why would I want to contact some stupid celebrity, let alone pay to do so?

High tech medievalism.  Lovely.

...with no guarantee that they will respond, let alone read it.  Many of them don't even run their own Facebook pages.  Anyone wasting money on this is a fool.

Wait. Wait. Wait.
There's a question that needs to be asked here.
How much does it cost to send a PIE to Rosario Dawson? Or Charlize Theron?

Wait ... contact Robert Preston via Facebook?!?!

I'd be willing to pay for that because he's DEAD. The Last Starfighter was his last movie.

He's an award winning author not exactly a 'stupid celebrity'.

Robert Peston, on the other hand, is very much alive. He appears on BBC News a lot and explains why the global economy would be sorted out in a day or two if only everyone would listen to him.

Rushdie is a major celebrity and we should all follow his facebook page at all costs. I may only be saying this because I have a fine first impression of the Satanic Verses, or, it may be true. I'd follow the money on this one though.

If you can turn hatred into cash, why not?

Soon, it's twice that to send a message to Facebook Customer Service.

Allow me to demonstate.

Dear (hot starlet of your choice):

Can you send me naked pictures of you, or meet me at a pre-arranged place for raucous coitus?

Signed (insert your name here)

This thread not entirely approved of by bill bailey, but he's a nice guy so he'll deal.

Well he is. A conversation with him might be intriguing. Though I still wouldn't pay for it.

Facebook users could pay £10.68 to contact Tom Daley.

Isn't he in jail?

I bet the celebs are totally excited about this! They will love being on Facebook now

£10.6 to contact whoever Salman Rushdie pays to run his Facebook page?

Okay, I don't know if he does this, but many do and he certainly would have good reason.

What a tedious job for rushdie's assistant, though...

"Hmm..death threat, death threat, critical review AND death threat, death threat.. OH! Offer of acceptance into the who's who... death threat, death threat..."

What, the price is the same if I just want to send Mr. Rushdie a smiley face? WTF over?
