Here we go again – Facebook with another fail

Facebook says they’re just testing the service to see if they can get away with it.

No, the recipient doesn’t get a penny. The recipient gets the spam and Facebook/Zuckerberg gets the money.

If i was wrong about anything, it’s only because I said “slowly”.
