Facebook to start charging – spam spreading again.

Don't forget to share

No way!

Since the beginning of this year there have been various rumours about Facebook charging as from August 2011. There have been groups started up and posts shared.

This week we are seeing another type of  hoax viral message circulating Facebook that reads…

This looks like the old chain mails you used to or maybe do still get reporting that Hotmail are going to start charging unless you forward the email, and of course if you forward, you won’t get charged.  Yeah right.  Same thing here, its saying that if you share this message your icon will turn blue and Facebook will be free for you. This just wouldn’t happen.

There has been no reports that Facebook are going to charge, and in the Telegraph today it says that Facebook has denied claims that it has plans to charge. Besides after the launch of Google+ this would be a very silly time to do it.

Don’t fall for it, and don’t copy it and paste it as your status.

Hope this helps

  • Good post!  This is obviously a hoax, because Facebook is and has been over $800M/yr cash-flow positive since ’09.  Just another reason we have to type in captchas when we share links on Facebook now.

    • Yes you are right, thanks very much and thanks for the comment.

    People can be such idiots at times – it never suprises me how some can just copy and paste crap like it’s a fact. (dugg, stumbled and added to delicious)

    • It is strange lol kids mostly I guess – thanks very much. 

  • Thanks for the heads up. If Facebook dicided to charge it’s users, I would be gone that day. They make more than enough off of advertisers. I wish my blog cound have 1/4 the ads that FB does.

    • You’re welcome, yes same here 🙂  Thanks for comment!
