Facebook To Ask For Membership Fee? Don’t Fall For It Again!

Facebook has been rapidly upgrading their features with a more in-depth social media sharing and a timeline which has also enhanced personalization of user experience. These improvements have some people clamoring for the old Facebook to return and some people actually settling down. My bet is on the latter. Eventually, people will learn to adjust to the changes that have been successively thrown at them. Besides, they can’t do anything about it because they are using the platform for free. Let me emphasize that for F-R-E-E!

Whatever Facebook has done that is intended to enhance user experience doesn’t imply that they will be charging you with its usage. If that is the case, then I’d rather jump over to Google+ or any other free and potential social network. That isn’t what Facebook wants. Think about it.

This isn’t really a new hoax being pulled. In fact, it happened on 2009 and 2010. People who fall for that falsehood twice or worse thrice is not thinking straight. Why would they believe second hand sources when it is only Facebook that they should listen to? Try constantly checking out their blog facebook.com/blog and see if there are any announcements of charging users for using the social platform. Besides, they have a lot of business partnerships, third party developers paying for access and what about the Facebook Ads to get Facebook likes to business fan pages.

2009 Rumor Mill

Rumors that Facebook is charging $4.99 a month for the usage of their site. These are 100% false, unless you consider  paid Facebook ads but that is an isolated case compared to the average users.

2010 The Hoax Continues

There was an ongoing speculation of whether Facebook will be charging users for real this time. It claimed that Facebook will be charging $14.99, which has increased to $10 when you look at the previous fee from last year. This, of course is a hoax!

2011 The Re-emergence of the Myth

I don’t know why people are constantly deceived by scammers, when its plain to see that will never happen to Facebook. Access to the site is free and will always be free.

With this obvious hoax going viral, Facebook has released a statement to stunt its further spread, “A rumor on the internet caught our attention. We have no plans to charge for Facebook. It’s free and always will be.”

In addition, it doesn’t make sense why Facebook will attempt to carry out a move that is a stimulus on losing users when they can gain more from getting  advertisers. Think of this, where there are people is where businesses go. For information sake, Facebook gets the majority of its income from ads viewed and clicked by 800 million active users. In fact, more than 80% of Facebook’s revenue comes from advertising.

The above post seems to be well-intentioned and is meant to warn people about the possibility of Facebook charging, still spreading wrong information is dangerous. This will prompt more scammers on taking advantage of people who don’t know better. As I have mentioned before, look at Facebook’s blog to see whether there is some truth to these rumors.
