Facebook To Charge Users Who Comment ‘Thoughts And Prayers’

MENLO PARK, CA – Facebook has decided to charge users who comment ‘thoughts and prayers’ in response to tragedies and humanitarian needs.

“After reviewing the volume of ‘thoughts and prayers’ comments we decided there has to be a way to actually make these otherwise meaningless sentiments something of value.” explained Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Effective January 1, 2020 users who post ‘thoughts and prayers’ – also known as apathy and lies in Facebook speak – will be prompted to pay $5.00 to publish the response or find other phrases that reflect genuine concern or meaningful action.

Transactions will be processed through Facebook Pay.
