Facebook fee rumors circulating web

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Rumors say the popular site Facebook may soon charge users to keep their accounts.

More than 350 million people use the site to stay connected.

And it's not costing them a dime.

But word on the street is that Facebook wants to charge you $14.99 a month starting this July.

And while Facebook is denying the rumors, hundreds of thousands of people are saying they would leave the social network if they begin to charge.

There are even a handful of Facebook groups dedicated to protesting the possible charges.
