The recent charging rumor that suggest that Faecbook will begin to charge for its service is not dying, and as you would imagine, has been getting a huge amount of response over the past few days. We already discussed yesterday that this was untrue, but still gossip is doing the rounds. You can understand why users of the social network are confused over the situation, because it started as one of those convincing hoaxes that many of us have bought into in the past.
Rumors of Facebook charging a membership fee has done the rounds before, and no doubt we will see more, but those in the know have strongly denied that this will be happening – well not for now anyway – which you can read for yourself on their product/service Facebook profile page. Having said that, they do claim that they will never charge, and looking at how they generate revenue, there could be truth to the claim.
Let’s say for one moment that Facebook did start charging for the service, then the amount of income that could be generated from the more than 800 million users would be shocking. However, if this was the case, then a huge percentage of those users could jump ship and move over to Google+. Speaking of that new social media service, they have now made the service public and we can expect them to now ramp up the promotion.
Facebook is not only used by the general public, but also businesses as well, and is considered one of the most important ways to get your brands name out there. Facebook relies on this, as it also gets their name out there, consider the fact that people will be on Coca-Cola’s wall, which is a win win for both companies. However, creating this wall is often a huge challenge, but there are a few tips on how to create the perfect one.
Once again, do not buy into the rumors of Facebook charging, it’s not going to happen.
