The new Facebook hoax message

Now days after Google plus innovation Facebook is feeling the heat and making new and new innovations and I this process making the Facebook more and more confused and annoying. Suddenly, an array of new features making my Facebook dashboard a completely overhauled and frankly speaking it is making me feel awful though after few days am getting over this Facebook amnesia , but still the fear is lurking in my head like the sword of the Hercules , like the any time there will be more and more change. Though debate can be initiated with how long there will be innovation and how much speed these innovation can be done and can be do away with.

As Facebook updates again, new rumors that it will start charging users are spreading across the Web. The launch of the News feed and Timeline incited the belief that Facebook services will become paid. Though in reality it will not be as these will be the new features, Facebook is segmenting, and making the privacy more and more personal though Facebook can see it others cannot be. Timeline is good and futuristic but not necessary tool it is like a gadget adds on, more and more news about friend’s activities more news about friends activity, top stories, recent stories…too much information, mostly useless. By true admission it is useless not required  it is making it more and more clutter and it seems face book is getting heavier to load now a days compared to earlier version of Facebook, it is my personal animated calculation may be wrong I cannot guarantee with it.

That is why many people caricatured this feature with some cartoons criticizing Facebook by posting some cartoons and making Facebook know that they are not very comfortable with its recent innovations. "Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are." - Bertolt Brecht . There is a new Hitler reacts video which is the reason for the recent Facebook rumor. The initiator of the video just wants to know how many people are being fooled by this video.

Other users respond to the rumors with a sense of humor:

“On September 31st, 2011 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 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. Pass it on; it must be true because someone on Facebook I hardly know told me.”

This is not the first time hoax, even during the Skype integration rumor this also happens, and Facebook will not charge you any fee it will be free  to use.. Even official messages from Facebook representatives, which explain that charging users was never considered, don’t seem enough convincing to everyone.
