I knew this was coming, however, it came sooner than I excepted. Invites for the recently launched Facebook email/messaging are selling on eBay. However, if thought that it would not get any takers, there are already 19 bids with the latest one going for $117.50.
With more than 23 hours left for the bid to finish, the final price could touch the roof. Facebook is going to roll out the service to all users gradually, but till then you will come across several such smart users who will make money of something which is actually free. If you are in a hurry to get an invite, don’t buy it, just learn how you can get a free Facebook email invite for yourself. Patience is a virtue and the invite system is a trap, stay away from it.
Update: The sale does not look as bad it sounds. Entire proceeds of the sale of the Facebook email Invite will be given to a charity called Susan G. Komen for the Cure-Global Headquarters.
