*The (false) Facebook fee rumor is so persistent that it even warrants a page on Snopes.com, the website that that tracks down internet urban legends.
In the wake of free Internet provider NetZero changing its tune, could it be true that there is a kernel of truth to the Facebook monthly fee scuttlebutt?
The amount varies. The Snopes page answers to a $4.99 Facebook fee email rumor, but other messages carry taglines specifying $14.99 per month. Questions raised ask whether – if Facebook were to charge a monthly fee – users would continue with the service.
