Facebook will not charge…

In Facebook on July 18, 2010 at 6:44 am

With over 400 million users, Facebook could easily make billions of dollars by charging a membership fee.  And to be honest, I would be inclined (or almost feel obligated) to make the purchase – from a business stand point and on a personal level (so many pictures, notes, messages, memories are stored on there since I began using it in college)!

Well, no worries!  Any talk of Facebook charging is just an ongoing rumor, which “Facebook continues to deny, stating that their service is ad supported.” (AllFacebook.com)

For more confirmation, check out Facebook will not charge users, spokesman says.

  2. Great post. It is an ongoing trend now though that sites encourage people to join and then they start adding subscriptions or additional services which incur a fee. Facebook is a site which works based on having a large user base and therefore adding a fee could scare off a lot of people. However, this doesnt mean that they might not add costs for some of it’s features? Like LinkedIn, who realised it’s site was being used for jobs and therefore started charing businesses for additional job searching functionality.
