Developing Storm: Snow To Increase in Coverage and Intensity After Midnight

A major Nor'easter now developing off the mid Atlantic coast will put eastern New York and western New England on its western side through Tuesday.  Snow will become steadier from SE to NW across the region after midnight and towards daybreak Tuesday with snowfall of varying intensity through Tuesday evening.  A gusty NNW wind from 20-30 mph at times will cause blowing and drifting of the very dry snow creating poor visibility and hazardous travel conditions into Tuesday night. General Storm accumulations in the Capital Region of 8"-14" are expected.

Bottom Line: Facebook Scam

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:17 PM EDT
Could getting your regular Facebook fix soon cost you cash?
        
Some
users are wondering whether that's the case, because of a message that's been
circulating the site.        
        
It's a Bottom Line Alert, and
here's what CBS 6's Dori Marlin found out about it:

The message tells
users that Facebook has a new "membership price grid" with different tiers -
including gold, silver and bronze.

It then tells the user that if they
don't share the message with Facebook friends by midnight, they'll be forced to
pay the next time they sign on.
        
The Bottom Line?  The message is
a scam.
        
Facebook has said a number of times now, the site will
always be free for users.

So if anyone on Facebook says you have to pay
to play on the site, don't believe it - and don't give out any money.

If
there's something you'd like to get The Bottom Line on, send Dori an e-mail
about it: The address is thebottomline@cbs6albany.com.Bottom Line: Facebook Scam
