Of course, just like the plethora of other hoaxes purporting a charge on Facebook, this one is equally false. NO, Facebook will not start charging this summer. NO, it was not seen on TV. NO, copying this status to yours will not save your account nor will it "turn your icon blue". The assertion that copying this silly message to your status will save your account is there to help the message circulate and can be attributed to this message`s viral success.

This message is utter unoriginal nonsense and makes no sense on many levels (Facebooks business model will not work charging a fee, and why would Facebook save accounts that copy a message?) so therefore should not be circulated.
