Facebook Charging Users Is Just Another Viral Hoax

_________________________________________________________________________

Is Facebook Charging Users or Is It Just Another Viral Hoax?

By IBTimes Staff Reporter
September 25, 2011
__________________________________________________________________________
 
The latest rumor circulating online asserts that Facebook will begin charging users for membership. The rumor is gaining traction due to a chain message hoax spreading virally, although the company promises "It's free and always will be."


The message comes shortly after Facebook rolled out an overhaul of new changes including Timeline profiles along with a revamped homepage.
A few versions of the chain message stating that Facebook will begin charging for the profile changes have been spreading through status updates, since the new changes emerged early last week.
"THIS IS OFFICIAL... IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS... FACEBOOK WILL START CHARGING DUE TO THE NEW PROFILE CHANGES... IF YOU COPY THIS ON YOUR WALL YOUR ICON WILL TURN BLUE AND FACEBOOK WILL BE FREE FOR YOU. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON, IF NOT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO NOT PAY!!" one message read. 
Another message outlined the false membership subscription prices and the ability to opt out of the charge by re-posting the message.
"FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP. $9.99 PER MONTH FOR GOLD MEMBER SERVICES, $6.99 PER MONTH FOR SILVER MEMBER SERVICES, $3.99 PER MONTH FOR BRONZE MEMBER SERVICES, FREE IF YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. WHEN YOU SIGN ON TOMORROW MORNING YOU WILL BE PROMPTED FOR PAYMENT INFO...IT IS OFFICIAL IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS. FACEBOOK WILL START CHARGING DUE TO THE NEW PROFILE CHANGES"
While there's no telling where the chain message began, it is not the first time Facebook has been the target of hoaxes surrounding charging users to maintain their membership on the social network. Many bogus chain messages and groups, like one group created in 2010 called "300,000 MEMBERS NEEDED TO STOP FACEBOOK FROM CHARGING £/$14.99 A MONTH," have put forth the assertion that Facebook will no longer remain a free service.
The ongoing rumor continues to resurface every so often, regardless of the fact that Facebook has a message on its homepage reading, "It's free and always will be," when prompting its 800 million users to log in.
The chain message stating Facebook will charge a fee is proven to be just a hoax, as Facebook's advertising revenue is expected to reach $4.27 billion in 2011, according to ZDNet.

Street Preacher Walks Hermann Missouri

Street Preacher Walks Wildwood

A religiously motivated man, dressed in multiple layers of all white, decided to bless Wildwood with good karma on his way to Branson and Joplin, MO. The thing is, he is completely afoot. 

By Julie Brown Patton
eureka-wildwood.patch.com 
__________________________________________________________________________



Once a year, this street preacher travels to some area of the United States, "dealing with whatever God brings my way." Neal Armstrong walks on long, religious journeys.


He was a blinding image of total white in the 93-degree weather against a perfectly billowy blue sky as drivers rounded an obscure curve of Missouri Route 100 in Wildwood on Tuesday.
Who walks alongside a heavily trafficked roadway in high temperatures with a long beard, white gloves, a tall pilgrim staff and a Gilligan's Island-style, broad-brimmed sailor hat? Yes, this unusual vision of white unity turned a few drivers' heads for double takes, including mine, and prompted a few honks as he waved to radiate his self-professed love to strangers.
Should I stop and ask what his 'story' was? Afterall, it's not every day that one sees a person outdoors in multiple layers of clothes and a robe during the simmering Dog Days of summer in St. Louis, just tooling along in Wildwood for a religious walkabout.
Generally we see joggers, bikers or deer alongside the road—not someone who immediately conjures biblical images of Noah and Job.
But there were personal safety considerations for circumstances such as this. I drove on to take photos at my two scheduled stops, making a pact with myself to return to where the man was. If he was still there and available, I decided I would stop and ask for an interview.
I returned to the magical road segment, hoping I had not merely been daydreaming too strongly before. The street preacher was still there, and was amenable to my journalistic curiosities. And his is an interesting story, which I'm bursting to share!
A real silver lining
Neal Armstrong said he believes very strongly that "St. Louis should be deemed the Christian heart of the United States because it has four rivers running through it, just like the Bible recommends venturing off into the four corners."
He said the word "Saint" means righteousness, also giving an extra meaning to the city's actual name, St. Louis.
"Once a year, I travel to some area of the United States, dealing with whatever God brings my way," said Armstrong, who indicated he had ridden the bus to Wildwood and started walking southwest from the city's edge on Tuesday.
This middle-aged man, who said he resides with his sister in south St. Louis city when he is not walking to spread the gospel, has been a St. Louis resident since he was 10 years old. He said he babysits his niece and nephews in exchange for room and board.
Armstrong said he walks about 11 hours a day when he does these trips, and maybe rides with someone an average of 1 hour a day. "An hour before dark, I look for the front porch of a church, a homeless shelter or some place safe to sleep, wherever my guardian angel takes me."
Armstrong said it was his thirteenth year of walking the United States.
"I want to see the people and I want them to see me," he said, as an explanation of why he chose to walk and encourage people to be good stewards of the Earth.
This man gets around on vapor
Armstrong claims to have walked through 45 states and at least 20,000 miles during the past 13 years. "I've been stopped by the police more than 450 times, and put in jail three times," he said, citing what he considers to be bogus charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct.
"I don't like to take rides from police, because I've learned they don't like my past. They aren't understanding, and they usually take me to some remote place and dump me off, when they ask if they can give me a ride to the county line," he said.
He claimed to have been beaten up from various police four times in his life.
He said he had taken a bus to Chicago, then walked to Detroit and then to New Orleans over a six-month period one time. In 1999, he claims to have gotten from St. Louis to Jacksonville, FL, and back to New York, as one of his longest adventures.
"I've criss-crossed the country, going to Arizona, Washington, and Texas, going to all the corners, just like the Bible says to do," said Armstrong.
He even claims to have gone to the top of the World Trade Center one year before it was gone, and to the White House when President Bill Clinton was in office.
Armstrong said one of his most memorable trips was to the Grand Canyon. He said he also enjoyed Idaho's mountains and lakes. "I got to sleep for four nights in the Red Wood Forest, too."
He said people sometimes bring him water and food. "I can go a long time without food. It's all about being obedient to God."
Why Armstrong walks to all ends of the United States
The self-professed street preacher said he was orphaned at age 10, and raised in five different foster homes. "I wasn't always a good guy, though," said Armstrong, citing that in his twenties, he and his friends partied, consumed drugs, stole items and in general, were less caring about others.
"Then one day, when 20-something, I almost drowned, trying to swim cross the Mississippi River. It was about 5 p.m. that day, and I thought I could swim straight across. My friends told me not to try it, but I did anyway," he said.
"I got into trouble and yelled for help, but my friends were just waving goodbye from the dock. I started begging and pleading with God. He dunked me five or six times, just to get my attention. I promised I would go back to church and quit doing bad things. It felt like he asked if I was sure I wanted to do that, and I was. He helped me get out of drowning, but I didn't make good on my promises right away."
Armstrong said it took him 10 or 11 years to get back to keeping his promise to God. "He kept reminding me that I was lying that day if I didn't live a good life," he said. "Finally I got to where I couldn't sleep at all, and I knew I had to do something to help show that God's love comes from the heart, so I started these walks."
Before we parted ways, Armstrong shook my hand and blessed me. As I pulled back onto the highway, I watched Armstrong disappear around that curve, wondering where he would bunk down that night.
The white-flowing street preacher was full of hope, saying that he just knew the people in Joplin would need him. And just maybe they will enjoy his "can-do" spirit, after what all they have been through.

Wall Street protesters cuffed, pepper-sprayed during 'inequality' march

Sunday, September 25th 2011

Scores of protesters were arrested in Manhattan Saturday as a march against social inequality turned violent.
Hundreds of people carrying banners and chanting "shame, shame" walked between Zuccotti Park, near Wall St., and Union Square calling for changes to a financial system they say unjustly benefits the rich and harms the poor.
At least 80 people were carted away in police vehicles and up to five were hit with pepper spray near 12th St. and Fifth Ave., where tensions became especially high, police and organizers said.
The National Lawyer's Guild, which is providing legal assistance to the protesters, put the number of arrests at 100.
Witnesses said they saw three stunned women collapse on the ground screaming after they were sprayed in the face.
A video posted on YouTube and NYDailyNews.com shows uniformed officers had corralled the women using orange nets when two supervisors made a beeline for the women, and at least one suddenly sprayed the women before turning and quickly walking away.
Footage of other police altercations also circulated online, but it was unclear what caused the dramatic mood shift in an otherwise peaceful demonstration.
"I saw a girl get slammed on the ground. I turned around and started screaming," said Chelsea Elliott, 25, from Greenpoint, Brooklyn, who said she was sprayed. "I turned around and a cop was coming ... we were on the sidewalk and we weren't doing anything illegal."
Police said 80 protesters were arrested or ticketed at multiple locations for disorderly conduct, blocking traffic and failure to obey a lawful order but the number could rise.
Officials said protesters did not have a permit for the march and one demonstrator was charged with assaulting a police officer, causing a shoulder injury. The NYPD was investigating the use of pepper spray.
"I was shocked because it seemed like one person after another was being brutally tackled, and it wasn't clear why," said Meaghan Linick, 23, from Greenpoint, Brooklyn, who attended the rally. "I was deeply disturbed to see them throw a man [down] and immediately they were pounding on him. Their arms were going back in the air. I couldn't believe how violent five people needed to be against one unarmed man."
The protesters, joined together under the banner of an organization called Occupy Wall Street, have been stationed in Zuccotti Park since last weekend, attempting to draw attention to what they believe is a dysfunctional economic system that unfairly benefits corporations and the mega-rich.
"The central message is that in this country, there needs to be more conversation about wealth and power," said 23-year-old student Patrick Bruner.
As night fell, those detained were hauled out of vans and buses and into police precincts to be processed.
Hundreds more protesters congregated in Zuccotti Park where for a while another clash with police seemed imminent, but as midnight approached tension eased as die-hards prepared to camp out for the night.With Ashley N. Fleming,
