Facebook is going to charge
Rumors that Facebook would start charging users for the privilege of sharing baby photos and "poking" people they sat next to in the second grade have circulated for the past couple years. Recently the announcement that Facebook would partner with Skype to offer video chat reignited rumors that the house that Mark Zuckerberg (and a bunch of other dudes) built would start charging for video and other services.
Why it's dumb: Ironically this rumor often takes the form of a status update Facebook users are told to repost or a "Stop Facebook From Charging" Facebook group. Back in 2009, a Facebook group called "We are against paying $4.99 for Facebook" turned out to be a (big shock) virus-spreading hoax. As a spokesperson for Facebook recently told The Huffington Post, "Facebook is free and always will be." (The price of a free Facebook is eternal vigilance when it comes to your privacy settings, however.) Let this be a lesson to all those who think that the way to show your disapproval for a Facebook policy is to spend more time on Facebook.
