Bilton says one small business says it is being told by Facebook to pay as much $7,500 to reach the core of its subscribers and their friends. The owner of the company said he spent $50,000 to acquire it Facebook fans and is now asking to be paid to reach them. “Had I known that we were going to be charged to reach those fans as well, we would of not spent a dime with Facebook,” the business owner is quoted as saying in Bilton's post.
