Don’t believe everything you hear. This rumor seems to fly around about once a year. I did some searching on the web and found that thus far Facebook will continue to be FREE.
There is really no reason for them to ever charge us as user. They get the money to run the site from the advertisements. Even when it was first started by Zuckerberg, the whole point was for it to be free. So as long as he is running things I am sure it will stay that way.
If you want another social media outlet that is similar but different from Facebook come join me over on google+. It is easy to use, you can creat circles and it is also FREE!!
I hope this clears up the newest rumor about Facebook for you all.
