CONSUMERIST: FACEBOOK CHARGING FEE A HOAX!

‘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.

Looks like this malicious and sickening behavior quite prevalent in Malaysia in certain quarters has now metastasized!’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST: FACEBOOK CHARGING FEE A HOAX!

Whether it is an hoax or a spin or worst a test to evaluate ground and market sentiment the following statement:

‘FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP. $9.99 PER MONTH FOR GOLD MEMBER SERVICES, $6.99 PER MONTH FOR SILVER MEMBER SERVICES, $3.99 PER MONTH FOR BRONZE MEMBER SERVICES, FREE IF YOU COPY & PASTE THIS MESSAGE. BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. WHEN YOU SIGN ON TOMORROW MORNING YOU WILL BE… PROMPTED FOR PAYMENT INFO…IT IS OFFICIAL IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS. FACEBOOK WILL START CHANGING 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’

was in very bad taste!

Many hundreds of thousands were totally pissed off and some users had started posting a message on their walls, and encouraging their friends and family to do the same, claiming that Facebook will start charging this summer and many like me saying if they do then I will opt out as life can go on for me without facebook – period!

By the vulgarity of this prank if it was a prank was 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!

Sounds like the workings and strategies of some of the made in Malaysia cronies running several monopolies, businesses, and other industries not because they are experts but because they are politically connected a very life consuming and destroying pandemic!

Coming back to facebook I am now advised by its management that the truth is 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.

Looks like this malicious and sickening behavior quite prevalent in Malaysia in certain quarters has now metastasized!
