I remember hearing or reading somewhere a long time ago that the only reason air was free was because no one figured out a way to charge us for it, yet. Now, it seems that whenever I read an article about Facebook, more often than not, it introduces yet another new service that Facebook wants to try to charge us for. I completely understand that Facebook is a business and therefore they are supposed to find new ways to make money. However, at what point does their nickel and dimming hit a nerve and start to push people away instead of drawing them in?
I attempted to find a listing all of the things you could pay Facebook for, but I couldn’t find a menu of services. Below are the services I found that Facebook charges for. Did I miss any?
- Facebook Charging to Message Celebs And Other News You Need to Know
- Facebook testing service to let strangers pay $1 to message you
- Advertise on Facebook
- Promote your post on facebook
- Facebook credits
Don’t worry, Facebook stalking is still free and always will be. :)
