SAN JOSE, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Jose Headquarters) – Our friends at Facebook never run out of ways to make money out of its subscribers, the latest being charging $12 per month for that much-coveted blue verified checkmark.
Now, they’re swooping in on those who want to re-establish FB friendships after having been previously unfriended.
The Adobo Chronicles learned that if the new friend request is accepted, Facebook will send an email and bill to the requester for a flat fee of $5, payable by PayPal or credit card. The charge will appear as “reconnection fee” much like what is being charged by telecommunications companies for accounts that have been deactivated or cancelled.
It is only when the payment is received by Facebook that the accepted friend requests will be effective.
