Facebook is charging you soon

I am not a pro-Facebook nor any pro-WeChat person here. I am merely stating the facts for blogging purposes:

mIRC - launch in 1988, died.
ICQ - Launch in1996, died.
Friendster - Launch in 2002, died.
LinkedIn - Launch in 2003, Microsoft bought over, surviving and becoming like a Business KOL platform + job hunting. I think if not because Microsoft bought over, it will end too.
Myspace - Launch in 2003 and died.
Facebook - Lanch in 2005, surviving.
Flickr - Launch in 2004, bought over by Yahoo and then now from free services change to subscription.

What happens if social communication apps like WhatsApp, LINE, WeChat, Telegram, QQ, Signal, Skype, etc start charging membership fees? Do you still remember when WhatsApp started, it is a paid app that cost Ringgit Malaysia RM8 to download?
