Facebook Start Charging For Services - - Hoax Message Circulating on on Facebook

Beware! It’s a Cyber World – Summary: Message circulating on Facebook claims that Facebook will soon start charging for access but those who repost the message on their walls will get to keep their free accounts if their Facebook icon turns blue.

The subjected matter looks like below:

The message can be read as: It's official.. signal at 12;20 it even passed on tv. Facebook will start charging this summer. If you copy this on your wall your icon will turn blue and facebook will be free for you. Please pass this message if not your count will be deleted. p.s, this is serious the icon turns blue, So please put this on your wall

Beware! It’s a Cyber World – Explanation: This is a hoax message just to fool the Facebook users like many before, see HERE.

“They won't cancel your account, they won’t make you pay for your account, they won’t make you pay for a certain part of Facebook, they won’t suspend your account. Stop forwarding those messages.”

This is the reaction of the message being posted by face book users on their walls, and encouraging their friends and family to do the same, claiming that Facebook will start charging this summer.

According to the message, if you post it on your own Facebook wall then you will still be able to use the social network free of charge.

There's no link to any supporting evidence to the claim, and users would be right to treat it with extreme scepticism!

The reality is that Facebook has no plans to charge its users for accessing the site - indeed, it would be a very odd time for them to announce such a controversial move, just as its freely-available Google+ rival is launched.

My guess is that someone has started the chain letter as a piece of mischief - curious as to how many people they could fool into posting the message onto their Facebook pages.

It's not the first time, of course, that Facebook users have been hoaxed by such messages.
