(Hoax) Facebook released the entry price: $5.99 to keep your status “private”

A Facebook hoax started in September of 2015 that is making a comeback claims that “Facebook released the entry price: $5.99 to keep your status “private.”” The Facebook hoax claims that if you copy and paste specific content into your Facebook timeline and share it with your friends that you will be offered the service for free by tomorrow. However, this is not true.

Facebook is not switching to any paid subscription service and sharing content on Facebook that suggest otherwise will not help you one bit.

In Facebook’s Help Center section, the social network was asked about this and responded. Facebook says “Will Facebook ever charge for service?” quite plainly “No. We will always keep Facebook a free service for everyone.”

Here’s an example of the initial hoax:

Now it's official! It has been published in the media. Facebook has just released the entry price: $5.99 to keep the subscription of your status to be set to "private". If you paste this message on your page, it will be offered free (paste not share) if not tomorrow, all your posts can become public. Even the messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed. After all, it does not cost anything for a simple copy and paste
Better safe than sorry is right. Channel 13 News was just talking about this change in Facebook's privacy policy. Better safe than sorry. As of September 26th , 2015 at 01:16 a.m. Eastern standard time, I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, or posts, both past and future. By this statement, I give notice to Facebook it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, or take any other action against me based on this profile and/or its contents. The content of this profile is private and confidential information. The violation of privacy can be punished by law (UCC 1-308- 1 1 308-103 and the Rome Statute). NOTE: Facebook is now a public entity. All members must post a note like this. If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version. If you do not publish a statement atleast once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates. DO NOT SHARE. You MUST copy and paste

Facebook has just released the entry price

These variants of Facebook hoaxes have been in circulation for many years and this particular hoax was initially started in September 2015. A Google search will reveal many websites that have previously debunked these types of Facebook hoaxes in the past.
