The video pokes fun at Facebook’s stock price; Jest editor in chief Jeff Rubin told Mashable why on Friday:
“Mark Zuckerberg obviously has an ambitious vision for the future of Facebook, so we thought it would be funny to imagine what would happen if this sudden pressure to make money caused them to focus on the very, very short-term and completely sell-out their users. We wondered, ‘What would Facebook do if they didn’t care about existing a month from now?’”
But this isn’t the first time that joking claims have been made about how facebook would look in a fee based scenario. Blog site TechTree.com did an April fools joke that said:
“Users will get two account options – Free and Pro. Free accounts will let users post photos and links, but will have size limited to thumbnail only, big banner ads and popups. Moreover, users will have to take a paid survey for each login. However, Facebook reassures that the entire process won’t take more than 10 minutes. The Pro account will let users post, share and view videos without worrying about the size and quality. Facebook said that starting next month, all users will be migrated to free accounts if they do not pay an amount, which is not disclosed as yet.”
But in all seriousness, what would be some great paid features? Give us your ideas and feedback…
What could Facebook make “pro” features that would actually be worth paying for?
