Mark Zuckerberg once suggested that developers pay something to the tune of $0.10 USD per year for access to a user's Facebook data.




He made this suggestion in an internal e-mail, dated October 2012, released by the British Parliament on Wednesday as part of an investigation into fake news on Facebook and elsewhere.




It was part of a conversation about how Facebook could make money from its platform for app developers.




On Wednesday, Zuckerberg said in a statement that this suggestion was merely about monetizing access to the Facebook platform, not selling user data directly: "We've never sold anyone's data," he said.



To Mark Zuckerberg, your data may only be worth 10 cents a year.
In 2012, Facebook's CEO suggested that the company charge developers 10 cents a year to access the friend lists and other personal data of its users, according an email message released by the British Parliament on Wednesday as part of a larger cache of internal Facebook documents.
Zuckerberg was discussing ways the company could make money from its so-called platform business, which allowed programmers to use data from the social network and build Facebook features into their apps.
