Facebook Premium users?

Postby Kickaha » Wed Sep 30, 2015 3:36 pm

I must have missed something but I'm now seeing on Facebook "this content only viewable by Facebook premium users". I assume this is Facebook trying to earn money from its user base?

Anyone a Facebook premium user?

Total hoax, Kickaha. It's almost as bad as the fake privacy notification going around on FB right now... HOAX ALERT!

"Gold Membership Trolling, also known as “Gold Account Trolling” or "Facebook® Platinum", is an online prank that involves posting a fabricated image to raise the false notion that a paid account is required to view the real image. This method of trolling is most often found on image boards, discussion forums and social networks."

You have to be careful these days Kickaha, people like that are parasites, too lazy to make an honest living so they have to steal from others. Don't forget, when you're not sure ask someone. I don't know why FB doesn't take of care of it, they've kicked people off for less :flower:

I don't think anyone's actually trying to make money from it, Starlite - if they did then Facebook would certainly kick them off and quite likely take legal action too. It's just a joke to wind people up.
