Facebook will now let group administrators start charging $4.99 to $29.99 a month for exclusive membership in certain groups, the company announced today in a blog post. Parenting, cooking, and home cleaning groups will be the first ones to get the new feature as part of an early test.

During the test, Facebook won't be taking a cut, but since the feature bills through iOS and Android, they'll get their 30 percent cut of a user's first year of subscription and 15 percent after that.
