A day ago, I recieved a message from a friend who is living in the US telling e that FB was going to start to charge. I don´t use much FB, but I fing it a shame that Fb was free for so long and now that it has so many users it will charge. What do you know about it? Is it true?

No, it is not true. That rumor goes around at least once every year.

No! This is a hoary old chestnut which seems to come back at least once a year!
An ages-old hoax claims Facebook is planning to institute a monthly charge for users.

I am not on FB, too tedious and time-wasting for me, but glad charging for use is a hoax.

No I doubt it. Facebook is now part of the stock market and they sell shares, if people were charged and stopped going there the stock would hurt. People have been saying this for years. BUT they do charge for business pages.

This rumour has ciculated many times in the past, along with stories of Facebook releasing personal data. The site is a multi billion dollar generating business, so they are unlikely to endanger it in such a way. Nevertheless, such rumours rapidly spread and become common knowledge.

@marguicha Your friend will most likely have received the message in a similar way and been as concerned as you was.

@Asylum She is a very rational person. But still, there are some things you find at the web that are dangerous and untrue. My credit card was hacked some years ago. I was inocent and stupid. It could have been worse. Now I know what to do and I have a Bank insurance.
