In testimony to the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees on Tuesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg indicated Facebook might one day offer a paid version. Zuckerberg seemed to reveal that a paid version of Facebook is under consideration in response to a question from Senator Orrin Hatch, who asked if Facebook will always be free. Zuckerberg said: “There always will be a version of Facebook that will be free.” This answer left the door open for a version that users do pay for. In an interview last week, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said an ad-free Facebook “would be a paid product.”
Would you pay for an advertising-free version? And if so how much?
