Will Facebook Consider A Paywall In Future?

Will Facebook Consider A Paywall In Future?

Paywall necessarily refers to the services offered online on websites hoarded by millions of users. The only different between normal access and paywall is that paywall referred to a paid service. For instance, to read the online edition of different newspapers, you have to get a paid subscription. That is what paywall is about. Facebook has filed for IPO recently and soon will be on Wall Street indexes. This will put an additional pressure on the social network to make money every year and show profits and growth. So will Facebook expect the option of a paywall in future? And how viable would it be?
