There is rumor on the corridors of silicon valley Facebook could be set to charge monthly fee for an ad-free version of the site.
The social media giant has been exploring a subscription based model for her platform.
Facebook is reportedly considering charging users a monthly free to use an ad-free version of the site.
Facebook has been under investigation in recent months considering the way users are been targeted by ads, especially in regards to political messages.
The number one social media platform could look into using a paid subscription model according to some reports in the US.
The Chief Executive Officer of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg has also been forced to answer questions before the House of Congress after users’ private data was shared with marketing firm Cambridge Analytica.

Reports in the US now suggest Facebook has been conducting market research to determine whether an ad-free subscription model would be popular with users.
Facebook has previously rejected using a paid subscription based model after looking into whether one could be implemented.
The social media site is currently free to its over 1.5 billion active users.
Zuckerberg has said a version of the site will always be free showing indications that the social media giant is strongly considering a paid subscription model.
It is unlikely the tech giant will charge all its users but could look at a subscription model without adverts for those who choose to sign up.
During his testimony before congress last month, Zuckerberg said the site will always be free in some form.
He said: “There will always be a version of Facebook that is free.”
Facebook made around $39.9bn in advertising revenue in 2017.
Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg also touted the benefits of customers paying for a version of Facebook when announcing its financial results earlier this year.
She said: “We certainly thought about lots of other forms of monetization including subscriptions, and we’ll always continue to consider everything.”
According to Bloomberg, Facebook declined to comment when contacted over the issues.
