Rumours of Facebook Charging $2.99 a Month a Hoax

“Facebook To Begin Charging Users $2.99/mo Starting November 1st” says the headline that has many Facebook users in a tizzy. So is it true that Facebook is going to start charging $2.99? No! That headline, and the article that appeared under it, were written and published on the National Report website, which is a satirical website similar to the Onion. So, put another way, imagine the Onion printing an article about Facebook to begin charging – how seriously would you take it?
