    It's about time FB started paying us for the content we create and they use to make money from adverts.

    If they're serious then perhaps they'd like to actually improve the quality of the content they server. 480p or 360p livestreams? You're having a giraffe faceache

    Translated into English...

    Google makes a shedlod of wedge from Youtube and we want some of that.
    There's few organisations I detest more than Google, but FB qualifies. So .... thanks for the offer an' all, but no. I mean, hell, no.

    All those people they charge to promote a blog post just so their followers can see it. Even though without these people FB would have died and they provide the content that users want to see.
