Initial feedback based on a survey by stern agee shows the majority of users (83.6%) are unwilling to pay anything to make sure people see an important post. I wanted to see what you get if you do decide to pay; when I promoted a post; my promoted post gathered 2.9 times as many views but only about the same number of likes as my typical post of this nature."
