Facebook To Offer Promoted Classified Ads?

If you ask me, this is a stupid idea and it will only succeed in pissing people off. First off, no one wants to see used couch ads in their news feeds. Secondly, if I wanted to let people know I had something for sale via my Facebook page, I would just post it. Why would I pay to promote it? FAIL all the way around on this idea.

Facebook is testing a new service that might make Craigslist a thing of the past. Two sources within Facebook, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, have independently told The Daily that development of a classifieds project is on a fast track, not just as a way to not just engage its millions of users but also as a way of allowing them to engage each other.
