… think again. It’s not the first time a viral rumor has spread that Facebook, with over 4 Billion bucks a year in ad revenue, is going to start charging membership fees.

Here’s a quick quote from the International Business Times:

“The ongoing rumor continues to resurface every so often, regardless of the fact that Facebook has a message on its homepage reading, “It’s free and always will be,” when prompting its 800 million users to log in.

“The chain message stating Facebook will charge a fee is proven to be just a hoax, as Facebook’s advertising revenue is expected to reach $4.27 billion in 2011, according to ZDNet.”

So: 1.) rest assured that you are not about to be charged to share meaningless stuff with your buddies, and 2.) don’t let the hoaxers use you to copy and distribute their phony Facebook notice.
