Stop spreading the Facebook hoax, please

Some Facebook users have 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.

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 skepticism!

The truth is that Facebook has no plans to charge its users for accessing the site. In fact, it would be extremely poor judgement on the part of Facebook to begin charging for their service, just when Google is about to launch rival service Google+, which will be free as well.
