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.”
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.

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?

  4. 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!!!

  7. I was expecting that to be happened. Here in turkey we have a site called Rüya Tabirleri , they are also started as free and then charged users. And their traffic dramatically lessened. If FB make this mistake, its destiny will be same as Rüya tabirleri site in Turkey . Twitter and Linkedin will take its crown.

  8. Sorry boys and girls, I'm not gonna pay for someone to buy an island while I live in the projects. I've lived without Facebook for years, won't be difficult to go back to that standard.

    Reply
    • 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.

  9. Well I guess I won't have a page anymore…Me and a lot of other people. Why pay for Facebook when twitter, tagged and other social network sites are free. I feel like they are about to loose a lot of members.

    • 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.

  21. I was using Facebook just because this was a good way to stay connected with my school friends. I always liked Google+ over Facebook. But this was not the case with my friends. Now when Facebook becomes a paid service, I would finally be able to convert my friends to Google+ and Twitter.

  22. You may be able to get loans using your personal credit, so why bother building business credit? It’s best to keep personal and business matter separate. Building business credit works so why bother building business credit and it’s used differently. You can also protect yourself by building business credit.

  23. 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!

  27. Ask questions about the blog post. In The Personality Traits of a Successful Writer, Barb Nefer says "A writer isn't going to get very far if she's crushed by rejection slips or intimidated by everyone else out there who might be a better writer.

  28. They are already charging to send people a message directly to their in box if they aren't a friend, if you don't pay $1 (US) then it goes to the "Other" space on your facebook. They are taking baby steps. Owell, motivation to delete the drama causing page anyways. Making people pay with ensure some people of breaking this stupid social media addiction. Screw facebook, life is better spent OUTDOORS with REAL friends anyways. Bring it on you money hungry Bast***s

  30. Mark Zuckerberg is just like steve jobs. only worse. He only cares about money. If this happens I think it will back fire on Mr Zuckerberg badly as in this economy not many would be able to afford this.
    If this happens i might have to rethink on using facebook. I certainly wont pay for any thing on facebook. I dont pay any money for the games . I make do playing games on facebook with out the extra things offered in games. He made his money from Facebook, now he will bury his own company if it backfires on him.

  31. This has to be lies, surely no CEO in their right mind would publically say "we're going to make money hand over fist".
    Load of rubbish!!!

  32. 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.
