    Facebook users, I have a question...........

    It seems Facebook now wants to charge you a fee for letting your friends see your updates.
    Is it per post or a one time fee? And how many of you will drop Facebook like a bad habit?

    I haven't heard about this nonsense. But if they do start charging a fee I will drop them very quickly! I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that they just released on the news that there are now 1 BILLION Facebookers. I tell you its all about GREED!!!!

    If you read the whole story it isn't that you will pay a fee for your friends to see your stories. The fee is to keep your post at the top so your friends wouln't have to scroll through all their news feed to see your post.
    you may encounter defeats, but you must not be defeated....

    Sounds like it. I personally do not use any of those social sites.
    My family has both our phone numbers and index fingers to push buttons. They can call and I will fill them in on the gossip here in Oregon......LOL

    Maybe so, but would you still pay this fee? If it was a one time deal or monthly.

    Hogwash - that rumor comes around all the time - facebook doesn't charge fees - that would be shooting themselves in the foot.

    I googled it, the consensus is that they wouldn't or won't.

    But, if they did would you drop them like a bad habit? Or are you so addicted to Facebook and would pay the fee? (I have heard some people are. )

    FB keeps saying it'll never charge . . . but guess we'll have to just wait and see.
