It's not real. The whole site is a spoof. Did you see the announcement in the upper right that Aliens Are Coming?

Didn't pay attention to it cuz of the MIB3 around it. The article looks legit though.

Certainly you recall when this a tabloid and was at the checkouts?

Just because it is online doesn't make it any more "real" than it was when it was Bat Boy on the cover in poor quality newsprint next to the Enquirer.

However, if you do think Weekly World News is "real", you probably also think The Onion ( http://www.theonion.com ) is. In which case you might show up at this site: http://literallyunbelievable.org/ Laughing

People have been saying Facebook will start charging for years now. If people would think for a minute they would put 1 plus 1 together. Facebook knows if they charge they will lose a very large percentage of their users. Facebook needs users because they make their money by ads and apps. If they charge people to yse facebook who would see the ads and use the apps. They get paid for you to use the apps and click the ads whether you click on ads or not Facebook gets paid. 24 billion dollar net worth. If those stocks continue to drop we are buying some because with the addition of instagram and all the new things that they will be rolling out those stocks are bound to rise. We wanna get them under 20 a share.

My husband and I were also talking about possibly buying into some facebook shares too. They just keep growing and growing so, it may be worth while. I know that this article is fake. It's true, people have been saying that Facebook is gonna start charging users for at least the last 2 and a half years from what I recall. People love to gossip.

FB closed at $27.72 and it has only been on the market about 2 weeks. It is still terribly over valued and will probably bottom out under $10. There is going to be, if it hasn't already begun, an investigation over the IPO. It wasn't kosher.
