    No, I sure wouldn't.

    I wonder how serious the possibility of that really is?

    They stand to lose a lot from advertisers when their membership numbers start dropping if they go ahead and charge monthly usage fees.

    I wouldn't worry about it, considering your link goes to a satirical website that makes up every story they post.

    I love Facebook, but some people take it soooo seriously.

    Even if they were serious, I have little interest in facebook. I think I could do without it, certainly. Additionally, with all the new and increased deductions from my paycheck, I'll have to trim a lot of stuff out of my budget...facebook isn't even on the map. Not all of us can go to our neighbor's house and take whatever of value we want, nor can most of us print money...

    If they start charging, no one will use it. Other sites will be created instead.
