Facebook announced many new features in F8 Developers Conference and already many of you tested out some of the features like Timeline and other ones. Well this post does not focus on features discussed in F8 conference. This post focus on Facebook Price Grid, Shocked? Read it further to know more about it.
Today, when I stumbled across a tweet from @praval stating “Facebook Price Grid”, I have no clue about it who that could be and I’m dam sure that it’s not the single status update that you come across it.
Do you believe that Facebook – one of the most popular and widely used social networking site which is free till date, now asking you to pay for new features (announced in F8 Developers Conference). Some dupe users sharing this message with all their online (offline) friends and believe that by sharing this message they avoid themselves from any charges in between $3.99 and $9.99 per month.
Here is original message,
FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP. $9.99 PER MONTH FOR GOLD MEMBER SERVICES, $6.99 PER MONTH FOR SLIVER MEMBER SERVICES, $3.99 PER MONTH FOR BRONZE MEMBER SERVICES, FREE IF YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. WHEN YOU SIGN ON TOMORRO MORNING YOU WILL BE PROMPTED FOR PAYMENT INFO…IT IS OFFICIAL IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS. FACEBOOK WILL START CHARGING 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 MESSGE ON IF NOT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO NOT PAY.
It’s hard to see these type of message when it is sent by a trusted friend and one thing I like to make clear that, Facebook is not going to ask for any payment when you sign-in tomorrow morning.
And one more thing if your friend forwards this message to you, then ask them not to spread it further and tell all their friends that they were sent mistaken (for more information you may also link this article, to make them more convincing?).
Now, in the end it all depends on Mark Zuckerberg what he thinks about Facebook Price Grid? Meanwhile, do not forget to spread the word by sharing this article with all your friends so that none of you being duped by others..
