FACEBOOK TO CHARGE USERS!

BREAKING –  Facebook, a public company, has reportedly announced a bold new plan – charging users?

Mark Zuckerberg reportedly announced that there will be a host of new changes to Facebook.
WWN’s  J.B. Smitts broke the story that Facebook was shutting down on May 15, 2013.  Maybe this helped Zuckerberg come up with his new plan?

Pressure from angry users has been too much and Facebook is looking at an alternative, something that will persuade Mark Zuckerberg to keep the site alive:  his social media platform is going to start charging users!

According to sources outside the company, Facebook is planning a subscription-based service with monthly fees starting at $0.99 for a basic “friendship” which allows for the posting of text and just one profile picture.  This fee will increase, depending on the number of friends you have, the messages posted and sent, and the pictures/videos/ games put on a user’s page.  The monthly fee will be capped at $50.00 per month at the high-end.

Bottom line:  the more you use Facebook, the more you will pay.

Reports from sources not affiliated with company are saying that all existing content has been “grandfathered” and will not be disrupted – though Facebook has decided to share this data with government agencies, including the FBI , the CIA and Michael Moore.
CIO, FLoyd Collins said – “people will get used to paying.  It’s not so bad.  What’s a few bucks a month?”

Investment bankers, including Goldman Sachs, who brought the company public,  learned that Mark Zuckerberg wanted to shutter the site, and are thrilled at the prospect of Facebook converting to a pay service.

“The addition of this substantial revenue windfall makes Facebook all that more attractive as an investment,” said Tom Wotozowski, Senior Vice President of Goldman Sachs.  “This will make it the largest corporation on the planet,  ever.”

Although Facebook has always been a free service, industry watchers estimate that the new fee-based program will generate well in excess of $50 billion in new revenue for the company – based on the most conservative assumptions of usage and the proposed tiered fee structure.

These estimates, of course, account for the fact that millions of users may quit Facebook in response to the imposition of fees.  “I’m not going to pay for Facebook!  It’s like paying for air.  It’s not right,” said longtime Facebook junkie,  Jessica Samsille.  “Screw them, I’m going back to MySpace,” said Bo Chan.

No matter.  Facebook executives are excited at the prospect of charging users. “We’re going to make money hand over fist,” said Facebook CEO Cindy Shooman.  “I think converting to a pay service is something that will make Mark want to keep the site going.  And I’ll finally get to buy an island in the Mediterranean.”

May 15, 2013 is Facebook Day.   The site will either shut down, or start charging users for its service – according to sources close to people from Silicon Valley.

  1. Mark Zuckerberg, has a very good reputation among friends & families on Facebook,
    Kudos to you for that, and your good legacy shall not be forgotten.
    However, please your good reputation should not be traded for money, service charge or not, let it be reasonable done.
    Thanks

  2. this doesnt seem like a very good idea to me because if the do start chargeing they will lose ALOT of users… but because of the people that do stay they will make alot of money……

    • But are you crazy?? Would you pay for a social network??? Facebook isn't so special to deserve that!! It doesn't deserve anything!! A lot of people will leave the site if it ever happens! Don't let them get you to do that!!

  3. Again with the story about "charging Facebook users"?? Phew! That's an old story and it never happened! However I don't mind it. I even hope it will be so, but I'd prefer that Facebook closes, because I hate it!!

      Spammers suck!

  4. Like CEO Sheryl Sandberg has stated she wants to buy an island, greed has set in and the tax man wants a piece of the cake…once they charge then they will have all your information .. and authorities have the biggest data base for free to monitor everyones privacy…

  5. It will be a cold day in hell before I contribute to. . . . . “We’re going to make money hand-over-fist,” said Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg. “I think converting to a pay service is something that will make Mark want to keep the site going. And I’ll finally get to buy that island I want in the Mediterranean.”

    • OK since they didnt let me post the link
      This is false….according to snopes do your research and get your news from reputable news sources.

  9. You nay sayers can believe what you want but know this –
    The Weekly World News is THE ONLY RELIABLE SOURCE for real news!
    It's like if Nostradamus worked for the New York Times!

    Just look at their track record for reporting who won the presidential elections before the elections! I for one think we need to stop having the wasteful campaigns and just let the WWN tell us who the president will be.
    So if WWN reports that you will pay for facebook, you will pay! And if the outrage from this causes facebook to back down from these plans then you can THANK WWN for the thoughtful reporting that brought the back lash.
    Thank you again WWN!!!

  13. if facebook wants to start charging, they should just add fee to people who use the mobile device all the time, and have their computer recognize which is mobile and which is not. and mobile should be charged for unlimited access to everything that face book is offering, just fyi.

  26. Its boggling to me how something liek facebook would finally come into existence, and become the standard, and then decide to charge for usage. Not everyone who has facebook has a credit card, so paying for it would be crazy. They need to be more open about whats gonna happen because people have all their pictures and lives on facebook, and to LOOSE those precious memories due to freed, is foolish! Everyone will just go to a free service again, rather then facebook, so you will not have people paying to keep in touch with friends. Its not right!

  29. Upset is one thing, but the use of the language here is really disturbing to parents of kids that use the internet and want to find out information about this stuff. Number one: it takes less than 2 seconds to type in the name of the post, article, letter etc. to see that it is a HOAX first. Most posts I have read here took 6 times that amount of time to write. Perhaps we need to be thinking less about Facebook and more about grade school. All this is very disturbing to obviously one of the last graduating high school classes where students actually had to 'pass' their classes and that was 34 years ago. What a sad state of affairs.

  30. I think it would be a good idea, so all the little kids would stop posting everything about their lives, which is causing so much gossips and problems to the smart adults that use this via to get in contact with their families that live far away.This a good way of communication if you use it the right way.

    • Shoot if that is the case anyone who needs international texting…. There is many carriers that have unlimited international and most are national unlimited. So go and jump off the blackrock cave you trolling troll.

    • They should make an age limit then. I think the age should be at least 14 and up at least. Yes I agree there are people that cause problems and gossip, but then again no one needs to be friends with those people. Let people say what they want, if you or anyone else doesn't like what other people post then remove them from your friends and don't comment on their stuff. It's as simple as that. Charging to use Facebook or any other social media site it BS.

    • so how much percentage of the users are under 18? they are going to loose A LOT of users..Where I live almost every teenager I know has a facebook

  31. I think its a sh*&face idea, I can't afford a cellphone as of right now, so I'm using the site to talk to my girlfriend who can't talk on the phone cause she has no voice (Cerebal Palsy if you must know) so use the instant chat to talk to her on her mobile phone.

    • You can hardly afford to pay your bills because you slave over your FACEBOOK STATUZ twenty four hours a day. Did you ever think THAT was the reason you can hardly pay your bills? How do you even have INTERNET?

  33. This is fake. Want to know why? Facebook brings in BILLIONS over the advertising space it provides for millions of viewers. Obviously this site is going nowhere because it's a cash cow. Second, the idea of a pay account based on number of friends is retarded lol and lastly, most people who use Facebook are generally highschool and college students. Both groups tend not to have extra spending cash and half don't have credit cards! (how else would you pay?) yep.

Don't you understand that there are millions of kids who use this site for good and bc it is time consuming with everything you can do on the site, it is keeping more and more kids from being bored and from drugs and gangs and sex and crimes???? Why is it so hard to have something great for free? Old friends were reunited, people grew up on here, teens spend all day on there! Its not right nor fair that many people will miss out on such a great site bc not everyone can afford to pay for airtime. We have to pay for internet and now every site we look up? Just not right! Very selfish and greedy. the only ones happy about it are those whose pockets will be filled for doing nothing!

  43. Well, for my pictures or communication, it's really hard to accept that facebook will charge monthly. How will I connect with my sibs like this? But at least google+, friendster and other sites will get their old user back. But [if I think about Zuckerberg], I think it's okay 'cause maybe he's too young to handle all this stuff. ['But if I think the reason is money] It's quite unfair because they I know that they are also making money in facebook like the advertising. There are 800+ million users on this planet and I won't believe that they did not earn money on that.

  44. Ive had Facebook for years, left MySpace for it but there's no way I'm gonna pay for pervs, stalkers, drama llamas, and overall weirdos to contact me just to stay in touch with family and friends. Skype, MySpace, yahoo msgr, etc, are all free and I have accounts with them all so the day payment is mandatory is the day I'm done and I've got thousands of friends, family and fans ready to follow… Definitely a dumb decision for them to be so smart.. talk about oxymoron lololol. Thumbs down!!!!!

  45. If Facebook do end up charging their users, they'll lose almost all of their users. It will be a pay site, but it would be better if it was shut down. It's stupid how they keep saying they're not going to charge people, and then turn around and say 'oh wait, we're going to charge you'. MAKE UP YOUR MIND, FACEBOOK PERSONEL!

  52. Facebook is already making profit from the advertisements, why would they risk LOSING millions of people by charging us? That would be insane. I surly wouldn't pay to stay. I know that a lot of us are here to play the games and most of us can't afford to pay so it would probably bankrupt FB if they started charging us. They would lose all the advertisements which made them a multi-billion dollar conglomerate. Snopes.com, urbanlegend.com and several other sites updated TODAY saying it is just another HOAX. Time will tell.

    • Cause a lot of them do not use their common sense that this is a plain HOAX and that the information stated is not true. Also they did not think about the fact that if Facebook is going to charge usage fees then it should've made headlines on ALL NEWS NETWORKS and not just one measly website such as this.

    • i watched a news segment this past week and it was the owner himself speaking live on television he is shutting facebook down if nobody will pay to be on his website. I think it is retarded. however, the fact is Mark Zuckerberg's identity was not hacked into it was another one of his ploys to get ratings. He really is shutting down and that is a fact, Fact: if we do not pay his fees for using facebook then we loose our accounts. His words not the news media. I watched him in an interview this past week and it came from his own mouth!!!!!!!!!!!

  69. The Weekly World News was a supermarket tabloid published in the United States from 1979 to 2007, renowned for its outlandish cover stories often based on supernatural or paranormal themes and an approach to news that verged on the satirical. Its characteristic black-and-white covers have become pop-culture images widely used in the arts. It continues to exist as a website.

  88. I believe that when the day comes FB will neither close down nor charge. I am certainly not going to pay even one penny for it is, what the seem to think is, it's privileges. There are too many alternatives and thanks to American (et, all) ingenuity, another site will slip right in and takes it place. We should keep posting our objections, refusal to pay, and willingness to jump ship. The power of the pen! (ok, power of the keyboard.)

  89. I'm hoping that people will delete their facebook account and finally get back to NORMAL and HEALTHY relationships, like meeting, hanging out together, doing things together, instead of everyone just sitting at home alone, chatting on facebook or skype, thinking how they are full of friends, yet they are sitting day after day at home alone….

I personally think its not a good idea because we all like the freedom of Facebook being free..there are so many sites out there that charge and we finally found one thats awesome and free..some people cant afford to pay a certsin amount a month. This site has been one of the best we've ever found..but I'm telling you one thing if you start charging us I am pretty sure you will probably lose a major portion of the people that are on Facebook..we love all love this site very very much..but like I said there has been lots and lots of people complaining about paying and I am one of them..especially paying $50monthly that is way too much money for most of us..THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!!!!"

  98. Wow for all who believe this. First, check the sight's credibility (not what they say). Second, google other sites to obtain more information. If you do these two steps you will undoubtedly realize this is all false. Facebook will not commence charging and people (such as those on this site) triumph in giving false information.

  100. WeeklyWordNews is certainly not a reliable site. They 'suggested' that the satelite would fall on a major building in Washington DC, but it fell in the Pacific Ocean. For clear proof that everything they have said on this story is false, check out this website: http://www.facebook.com/blog.php?post=7830237130
    It's writen by FaceBook themselves, hence the webaddress starting with <a href="http://www.facebook.com/” target=”_blank”>www.facebook.com/
    Anybody believing this story is as gullible as, and, for the last time:
    No, FaceBook is not going to charge. The best thing about it is it's a FREE social networking site, that will remain FREE for as long as the current holders own it.

This network was supposed to be apart of peoples lives. I had just gotten FB last year and I have found so many friends and family that I had lost contact with and this network helped do this. Not only for me but for all these million of users. Just to make a extra dollar, you will go back on your word and now start charging. I think you are all fools for being so greedy with all your money and all your fame. Well I guess that movie was right on about you. You will miss the biggest opportunity no one has ever had the pleasure of having. And as far as this person buying an island, well you go and buy your island cause the only person that will be there will be you. And no one else. Not even the social network that you folks created. You will lose your business and lose your fame. I feel sorry for you.

  119. I hope they are monitoring this site. The statement made by CEO Cindy Sherman is infantile. Does she really think the general public will pay to use this after using it for free just because we have in the past. I think we need to plan a week boycott of those of us who will not be paying when it does go fee for service and let's see how much money they think they will make then.

  121. OH MAH GAWD
    You people are so damn stupid. Seriously.
    Facebook is free because it is supported by third party applications, advertisements, and program developers. Facebook cannot charge it's members because if they started charging for their services that would mean that they would lose member count due to the people that are too damn broke to pay for anything, therefore they wouldn't make a profit and would eventually be reduced back to being ad-supported.
    To seriously consider the fact that Facebook would start charging is a moronic move on your part.
    Their website even says…
    "It's free, and ALWAYS will be…"
    It doesn't say…
    "It's free for now, but we're going to charge your dumb asses in March of 2012."
    But honestly, maybe this Facebook charging hype will actually help get some of you idiots off of Facebook and make room for us people who actually have the common sense and the knowledge of how social networking sites work and help us to where we don't have to constantly see stupid ass posts about how many plants you grew today in Farmville or your stupid fish that needs to be fed while you're away.
    I swear, if you're too damn stupid to realize that this is completely and utterly fake, then you're too damn stupid to be on Facebook… You're too damn stupid to even own a computer.

  139. Seriously? Not only do some people on here really need to learn to be more – shall we say – eloquent with their command of the English language, but they also need to realise that this story is just another fictional tale. I might add it does strangely coincide with when a rogue 'anonymous' claimant said Facebook was going to 'die', but of course that never happened. I am actually thinking maybe it was that 'rogue anonymous' (e.g. not a very good 'anonymous' or just a fake one altogether) that started the whole story off in the first place.
    Personally, I would not miss Facebook, Myspace or indeed any other social media networking website if it closed down ten seconds from now. People rely too much on web related forms of contact, even employers, and that's why it needs to go really. Lack of human element in daily life = lack of life altogether. E-mails is one thing, but if I could get ten quid for every time I read some other drivelling idiot about how his or her life was ruined by Facebook and some dodgy friends, I'd be able to buy out Microsoft and Apple put together.

  152. The fact that Goldman Sachs are 'thrilled' at FB becoming a pay service speaks volumes. The greedy bankers are so used to getting exponential year on year growth that has nothing to do with the real value of a business. Are they forgetting the dot com boom? It was only ten years ago. The fact is there is a limit to how much money an idea like Facebook can make. Its users have no lasting brand loyalty. Some will stick with it but the majority will leave. Which means those who use it a lot and would pay will have a much smaller audience for their posts, and then they'll desert it too.

  157. whether we believe all this or not the top and tail of it is the more of us that complain and refuse to pay if it does happen will prove their new plan unsuccessful and they'll have no choice but to leave it free right? i certainly wouldnt pay after so long of it been free. its down right disrespectful. It will lose so much of its popularity for a start because so many young people wont be able to afford subscription services and many will begrudge paying and rightly so!!. i wouldnt worry one bit personally because i think it will blow up in their face… Smile on facebookers πŸ˜€

We should be working together not bickering name calling and making people feel bad… They may not have time to listen to the news or mess on google finding facts all day, i know i dont because i work 12hr shifts 7days a week sometimes so i am barely awake when i get home and all i want is sleep… Just be considerate of other people and smile… it makes all the difference. use ur own knowledge to help those who dont know, like me understand better, and be proud it came from you…Were a team!!!! xx

  160. Mr. Just SAD, There is no free lunch now a day, You are greedy, you don't want' to pay for the service you use. I know you do not work for anyone for free do you? Neither you mum or sisters, do they. I am quite happy to pay a reasonable charges for the service. You have no idea how much it cost to run this service as you don't have any idea about Information Technology system. Can you not afford to pay? Well stay away from it then. SIMPLE.

  161. There should be a reasonable charge on FACEBOOK SERVICE. Until now it's FREE, therefore people are putting Random Post, comments. Once there will be a charge I won't have to see those unnecessary STUFFs on my facebook wall. I am sick of it. You don't have a CREDIT card or money, WELL DON'T USE IT if you can't afford it. Don't try for a FREE RIDE or FREE LUNCH in this world.

  162. “I’m not going to pay for Facebook! It’s like paying for air."
    THATS what's wrong with this world.
    So according to this idiot, there is zero value inherent in FB and more so, in her own life, FB holds zero value.
    Wrt 'air', does she pay for her ISP? Or does she believe that she is only paying for her modem?
    Does she pay for her cellphone service or does she foolishly believe that, once she has bought her phone, AT&T should give her free 'air' service?
    Jeez, these idiots really get to me.

  173. If you think about it, Facebook has almost a billion users. If they charged $.99 US per month, they would earn over 10 Billion $US per year! Yet, there is no need to charge anything to users (and risk losing audience) because they generate revenue from advertisers and partners, and they can increase advertising rates to earn more, if they wish. No advertiser is going to turn down the opportunity to reach a billion people.

  174. Hi FACEBOOK,,
    I come from a less develop country, but in my country, people still use fb as a "feast day", I know facebook has start charging users to use from $ 0.99 .. ..
    You know in my country you will have a $ 0.99 breakfast or simple lunch, and $ 50 is equal to 1/3 monthly salary of graduate students …
    So …. they will give up a breakfast to update STT, make friends, post photos or not?
    And they dropped the cost of using third month salary to spend facebook?
    Furthermore, the use of visa card or master card in less-developed countries as we are "rare" … many people do not even know the concept of master and visa …. so how to pay if they want to use? Is a series facebook cards to top up reasonable????
    Those who have money, live in developing countries, whether they feel this is reasonable? those who have money they are mostly busy with work, less air network to join the community, just as they are free they update information or share pictures of friends …. so you an earn alot of the money or not?
    Worldwide there are too many less-developed countries like my country …. facebook is a popular online community and development, if you want to collect user fees, I think you would have lost alot thing than more earn the money….
    Thanks

    • I agree with you. So many people cannot afford to use facebook if it is to start charging people. I believe facebook will lose a lot of people. However, people use their services religiously. So from those people to charge would be great for the company for a few months. Up until the users are looking at the money spent on the site every month. They will look for another social site. I can almost guarantee that.

    • if this is true i will delete my account and this is the only way i can keep in touch with my friends but i cant aforid it i know alot of people that said that if its true that they going to delete their accounts and facebook is a nice way to keep in touch but not payingto keep my account i just delete before i have to pay for it sorry but it be your lost not mine.

  179. Facebook has become giant collecting fees from advertisements, they already became billionaires . The move to charge visitors for a single post and friend they have is not abrilliant ideas. They will lose visitors, the most is having 1 facebook account per family with a very very inevitable texting . School children and teens will leave by parents choice and not many people socialize in facebook, they use FB as games avenue. But its better to play games in Zynga rather than continue in FB..well hmm..soon Zynga will become another giant and start charging too haha..this isn't fair

So you dumb a**'s sitting in your offices thinking $$$ have to think of how much $$$ you will lose when all these people who have already spent hundreds if not thousands of their hard earned money on facebook apps! You guys are going to realize what a mistake you made when your plan back fires and you all lose that $50 billion in revenue to the good hard working people who have paid for all their little bonus's on facebook when they take your ass's to court.

So if you are truly standing my your "Bible" then you should know that it is not right to speak out and post on subjects you obviously know nothing about. So go back to "myspace" or your llittle world and read your "bible". Surely you can find something to entertain yourself besides posting here and preaching your god on people.

    • Totally agree and now that Google + is hitting its stride and i feel its just as good as facebook, i think it would be a huge mistake from facebook to charge. But i guess just like myspace being passed for facebook the same is going to happen to facebook now and if it does and facebook goes under then its all on them!

  206. I don't think it's a good idea at all. You are going to get a lot of young people on social networking sites because I would assume more know how to use computers etc than most adults. Having said that I can't understand it when people create fb accounts for their three year olds etc when the three year old probably won't even know what it is. The same as I don't get when people post naked photos of their young children on it.

Facebook is the number one social network out there, and you would be remiss to not think of it as a potential tool for your marketing schemes. With Facebook, you can keep track of your contacts’ doings and goings, plus easily share everything you want to share with them.
    Link to your Facebook account, or link out to the various websites under your command. Just remember to keep your personal and business profiles distinct and separate.

  234. The amount of infrastructure, technology and people require to manage a site like Facebook is staggering. They should charge at least $50/year for their service. It would at least cover some of their overhead and turn a profit. It's ridicules that people expect this service be free. For those who think Facebook should be free, they should work for free to see how easy it is. I think absolutely that Facebook should charge something for their service. They certainly aren't making much on their advertising… cheap-ass Facebook users won't even click a few ads once a while… jesus.

  238. I think the pay per day (24 hour segment) could be painless and automatic, each Google , Firefox or social media site could have a one time set up which includes the user to enter his credit card number and contact info , and it is secured and everytime the user accesses the site the card is verified and charged a $2.00 fee for that 24 hour period , or possibly unlimited bulk purchase on a 6 month or annual pay up front plan . The pay per day plan would be automatic and thus not slow down the users access .. A fee of $2.00 per 24 hour day would be a fair price.

LOL you can count me out and back to myspace if this happens.. i wont pay that rich guy anything to use facebook.. its not that serious.. only reason its as popular as it is , is because its free. watch 75% of its users deactivate their account, then facebook loses money from advertising, loses ratings etc.. it will crush their so called corporation .

    • I just posted a picture of my dog,a stupid picture of my dog and at the top of my post it said something along the lines of if you dont pay us $1.00 nobody is going to see this post………..I think the date of this posting here was a fair warning,never wouldve believed it if I hadnt seen it myself. I am so going back to myspace! Actually,I might return to the ACTUAL world,people cant pretend theyre something theyre not quite as easily when were all face to face right?

  243. Its not serious to me, count me out lol lol 4 real. another social media will spring up and people will jump on board. If not broke why try and fix it. FB is making a serious mistake.

  246. It's not a false info., not entirely at least. Today I daw a new function on FB, something about putting a comment of yours on top of your page etc., and you have to pay for it.
    As far as I'm concerned this is stupid. I could live perfectly well without FB, I already don't use it so much. Still it's not only stupid but ethically wrong completely. The concept behind the FB was to connect people for free, and they are already making huge amount of money out of it. Good for them, but if that money isn't enough because each of them wants to buy an island in the Mediterranean then screw them.
    By the way, they are not enough empty island in the Mediteranean for these greedy people. There are people living in those island and they OWN them!!!

If FB make this mistake, its destiny will be same as Rüya tabirleri site in Turkey . Twitter and Linkedin will take its crown.

    • TRUE. I don't live in the projects but I wouldn't pay a dime for facebook…Guess everyone will go back to my space. I have a tagged and twitter page, so guess I will be visiting more often. Sorry but no deal.

    • Not so. I found a long lost cousin and sent them a message. FB wanted to charge me $1 to have that message sent to their inbox rather than their 'other' box because we were not "connected". Most people are not aware of the 'other' box. To my knowledge my cousin still has not read the message I sent to them. In my opinion FB is going from a social network to an unsocial network.

Building business credit works so why bother building business credit and it’s used differently. You can also protect yourself by building business credit.

  265. Such crap! Facebook have all that money to advertise and promote the site, yet they have the audacity to charge users to post status updates, photos/videos, comments, and play games on Facebook. I have been a user since 2009 and have used Facebook to keep in touch with family, friends, coworkers and former classmates. I don't think they realize that that's how people keep in touch with folks that's distant. So disappointed!

  274. Facebook has a track record of sneaky payments with their advertising, relative to Google for example. They are a company with dubious morals, not to be trusted, not with your private data or your money. So buyer beware,
    If you could get some ex cons to develop an overrated, glorified chatroom Facebook would probably be the result.
