If you don't like Facebook, then don't use it. You don't need to declare it in this thread.

Anyway, I immediately thought of it as a way to deal with spam and I was right. Why else would they charge people $100 per message? It's not like Mark Zuckerberg is short on money. It's more likely that he gets spammed a lot and a few messages out of many aren't spam. This is just one way of cutting down on the number of spam messages. If it works, then they'll most likely offer it to famous actors, musicians, and writers.

Should go to some charity, at least.

Really? And how do you know the reply you are getting is from Mark Zuckerberg himself and not from some personal assistant of his? :no:


Obviously, I was talking about a legit service.

You wouldn't use the website if you didn't trust them.

I sure would like to meet the idiot who did this. A fool and his money are soon parted.

It's bad enough when you get captchas..... and you're in a role playing conversation.... kills the mood.

I am sure it was because I messaged him just 2 days ago when it was free :p to introduce a rich Facebook client with video chat to compete with Skype. :p
