Facebook just released their new Membership charges - $9.99 for idiots, $6.99 for cross-eyed people, $3.99 for special dribbly people, but it`s free if you post a pic of yourself with a homemade foil hat on, goggles and most importantly swimming armbands (DO NOT FORGET THE ARMBANDS) by midnight tonight. When you sign in tomorrow, you will be prompted for your star sign. It is official, it was confirmed by my friend`s, wife`s, brother`s cousin, who heard it from his nurse in the special hospital - also confirmed by the voices that speak to him personally! These charges are all due to the new changes. If you post your pic, your icon will turn blue (AS IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN), and FB will be free for you, and as a bonus you will also get a special jacket to hug yourself (choice of colours available). Please pass this message on, if not your account will never be the same again once the aliens have tampered with it!!!!!

"if you don`t pass on that message, you won`t have bad luck..."

I know that`s now true. I got a chain e-mail once, and it said if i didn`t forward it to 7 people I would have bad luck. Well, I deleted it and the next day I died of cancer.

On September 31st 2013 Facebook will start charging you for your account. To avoid this, you MUST get NAKED, stand on your dining room table and do the Macarena, all while singing "I Will Survive". Then, and only then, will Micheal Jackson come down your chimney to tell you that your account will stay free. Pass it on, it must be true because someone on Facebook I hardly know told me.

This is a stupid chain letter, not real. there`s a few of these messages floating around, I recieved one a couple of days ago that said `it was on the news, this is real` it wasn`t on the news it`s not real. It`s like those spammers that email you saying `genuine offer` or `hello old friend` because they say that most certainly does not make it genuine or them an old friend. Facebook made those changes to compete with the new google+, and charging their customers would be counterproductive to that goal. Yep. That was a rant, I hate chain letters
P.S if you don`t pass on that message, you won`t have bad luck, noone will die because of it, and it will not lessen or increase the chance of someone you like calling you either.

Just so everybody knows.

I made it a personal goal to go around google yesterday and find 50 images of random common items and submitted them to IAB. Hopefully, all 50 will make up 100% of the content on IAB in a couple days.

Just kidding, I did however find 10ish good, new, funny, not on IAB videos to help with the apparent drought...

Here`s a little food for thought.

Laughed, Draught, Drought, Thought, Taut.
Laft, Draft, Thawt, Dra-oo-t.... 5 words that use different rules for pronounciation.

I before E except after C, and in weird words.

Why would people believe this garbage. IF facebook was going to charge, you think they would notice on your page that you posted that and simply say "Hey we can`t charge this guy, he posted the alert before hand"

Something like this goes around pretty much once a month. People who post the `post this as yr status` crap are super annoying. There is a payment tab in settings, but it`s for the losers who pay for extra`s in farmville and other stuff as rubbish as that.

I know a teenager posted this, but even teens must have some common sense? Sheesh.

"So, my fellow Facebook leaders, we are facing mounting pressure from other companies, especially Google with Google+. What do we do about it?"

"Um, suddenly charge an arbitrary fee, but make it free if you circulate a chain letter?"

"Sit back down Bob. Sometimes I wonder why we promoted you from company shoe licker."

I huckin` face hatebook. And the new stuff pisses me off. Bhhaarg i wish this crap was true, so that people would have to pay and then they would leave facebook and i could leave facebook too.

If you are a student you are almost dependent on facebook, all events and even some good lecture series get posted on this super crappy site. And of course Adolf Suckerberg, in his adventure for world domination is expanding his fourth reich by invading Spotify and treating it`s paying customers like jews of poland "hey spotifyers i am not forcing you to use facebook ar anything, these ghettoes are just temporary" grr! Ein Zuck, ein Reich! Ein Zuck Ein Reich!

Oh no, the sky is falling in!

Facebook isn`t really free. Users pay Facebook with information, advertisers pay Facebook money for that information. Nobody who gives it any thought or who knows anything about how Facebook works would believe that they`d ruin their own business model by charging users money in a more direct way. So it`s no surprise that many Facebook users fell for it.

And just how would Facebook detect you have passed on a very poorly written caps locked note?

Seriously, saying "if" twice in a sentence.
"...pass this message on if not your account will be deleted if you do not pay"

And it lacked punctuation.

And, last thing : (hypothetically) If you like Facebook enough, you will pay and adapt. If you`re like me, nothing lost.

And that`s just mentioning foods.

To avoid this, you MUST stand on your dining room table and do the Macarena, all the while singing ”I Will Survive”. After filming and posting it to your Facebook wall and YouTube, then, and only then, will Mark Zuckerberg come down your chimney to tell you that your account will stay free.

This is totally true, Mark Zuckerberg has even used some of his enormous wealth to hire a security force. If you don`t pay, they`ll bust down your door and take your computer. I heard it at the gas station. That person read it in the paper. I think it was called The Enquirer. So it has to be true.

My method of countering the stupidity of this, was to make this my status yesterday -

Facebook will start charging per month to use its services, but I know how to fix it so it`s free. Just send me your name, address, social security number, bank account number, place of birth, mother`s maiden name, and name of your first pet to my Facebook inbox and you`ll be all set... it`s even on the news.


Someone did. I weep for humanity.

It`s so unlikely that Facebook will ever start charging a fee for end-users that you can automatically assume any claim that they`re even thinking about it is just another in a long series of hoaxes.
