(KGTV) — A message people are posting on Facebook says "Since the $7.99 charge is coming, I do not give permission to Facebook to charge $7.99 a month to my account. Also all of my pictures are property of myself and not Facebook."

The message goes on to say the person learned the charge will go into effect on Monday from Channel 13 News.
Everything about this message is fiction.
Facebook is not about to start charging people, there is no organization called Channel 13 News and you own the rights to photos you post on Facebook, regardless of whether you post that message or not.
