Facebook: We're not going to charge to use our site

Facebook users, ignore that random warning about the social-networking starting to charge for its service.

It’s just hooey.

A group called “I’m quitting Facebook when they start charging $50/per month on July 8, 2010″ or “We will not pay to use Facebook – we are gone if this happens,” apparently has thrown thousands of users into a tizzy thinking that they are going to have to pay to keep up with their friends, co-workers and old high school classmates.

The buzz prompted Facebook to add this on the “help center” page: “Facebook is a free site and will never require that you pay to continue using the site.”
