As if this isn't a D'UH enough subject, but…
Don't believe everything you read on Facebook, people!
Despite a viral status update making its rounds on the social networking site claiming that it will soon be charging its users to be a member, a representative has shot it down as just a rumor!
This is apparently the status update in question:
“IT IS OFFICIAL IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS. FACEBOOK WILL START CHARGING DUE TO THE NEW PROFILE CHANGES. IF YOU COPY THIS ON YOUR WALL YOUR ICON WILL TURN BLUE AND FACEBOOK WILL BE FREE FOR YOU. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON IF NOT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO NOT PAY”
But according to Facebook:
“A rumor on the internet caught our attention. We have no plans to charge for Facebook. It’s free and always will be.”
People lose their minds over a few formatting changes and suddenly the sites going to be charged now, too? What else is new?
Just this generation's version of the chain letter!
Yuck, we thought we were rid of those forever.
