Are you high?
See, Facebook is going through that whole Internet age-young dilemma: how can you show you can make money on the web? Also known as: Show. Me. The. Money. (Thank you, Cuba Gooding, Jr./Jerry Maguire.)
CNET's not-so-original suggestion: Facebook could charge a nominal monthly fee. This fee would allegedly help the social networking site stave off the millions of dollars it's burning through.
Are you serious?
We like FamousDC's idea: "Instead of charging $1 a month to people who actually use the service for all the right reasons, Facebook should consider charging people who abuse the system." Their list of misdemeanors includes:
- over-frienders (those who add friends at random just to have more friends)
- people who take quizzes (you know who you are)
- misleading profile pictures
- inapproriate Facebooking: "If you Facebook on the day of your wedding, from the bedroom, at the gym or while you’re doing work on the John, you will be charged a minimum of a dollar."
If all else fails, delete your FB account and join Twitter.
