Re: Users should pay to use Facebook

@DropBear

What you're quoting there is what I say people (like you I guess) say to me when I talk about the idea that people should pay for the service.

As a reminder, this is what Zuck said:

"[...] there may be some price we could charge that wouldn't interfere with ubiquity, but this price wouldn't be enough to make us real money"

I take "some price we could charge that wouldn't interfere with ubiquity..." to mean there is a price we (FB) could charge that would be low enough to not put people off using the service - as in, we would still be ubiquitous...

But... "this price wouldn't be enough to make us real money" which I take to mean that if we (FB) did this we would still make some money, but just not lots and lots and lots of it.

Yes?
