The day may likely come when you will have the Facebook paid version alongside the free version.
Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg, is testifying today before the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, answering questions from 44 Senators about Facebook’s data managing practices, the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the use of its platform by foreign groups attempting to influence US elections.
During his questioning, on whether Facebook will always be free for users and supported by ads, Zuckerberg appeared to leave the way open for a paid version.
Zuckerberg then responded that a version of Facebook would always be free, leaving open the interpretation that the platform could one day charge a fee.
Meaning sooner or later, Paid or Premium version of Facebook will be available alongside the free version. And be rest assured that premium version of Facebook won’t contain any ads.

Well, I’m not surprised that this might happen, so long we still have the free version. No wahala..
I hope they wont phase out the free version one day
Better to always make it free. I don’t even install it on my phone. I use ‘friendly’ app instead
But I will always prefer the ad version. I really like Facebook ads. Unlike other pop up ads.
what will differentiate the free from the paid?
Na wa oh.
So far the won’t stop the free version of facbook. No problem
That’s not okay if they introduce it
Well i care less either ways
He had better make it free
The future of Facebook is not really looking good
Not at all surprised by this news.
when the paid version comes out, it certainly means some features and functions in the free one will be canceled.
I don’t understand them again
Facebook ads is still part of the news feed after all. Free version jare.
This is usually the trend. Gain popularity to a very large extent, to the point that so many can’t do without your services. Then introduce premium versions without ads. It’s very normal.
Damage control the future of Facebook is bleak.
Throw the whole Facebook away abeg, its been over a year I opened mine.
