If you’re are a user of Facebook then chances are that you have seen the common rumors floating around lately of Facebook introducing charges to members. However, Facebook has confirmed that these rumors are NOT true.
If you missed the rumor, it said that Facebook could charge users as much as $10 a month starting today (Monday) and caused a widespread of panic on the social networking site.
Most likely, you as a Facebook user might have seen this set as many people’s status’s starting on Sunday.
“FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP,$9.99 PER MONTH FOR GOLD MEMBER SERVICES,$6.99 PER MONTH FOR SILVER MEMBER SERVICES,$3.99 PER MONTH FOR BRONZE MEMBER SERVICES, FREE IF YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. WHEN YOU SIGN ON TOMORROW MORNING YOU WILL BE PROMPTED FOR PAYMENT INFO.”
By late Sunday, Facebook caught site of the rumor and cleared things up.
“A rumor on the internet caught our attention. We have no plans to charge for Facebook. It’s free and always will be,” read the Facebook post by Facebook.
So if there are ever any rumors out there saying that Facebook will start charging users, make sure to note that they are not true.
