Now that he's an avid Facebook user for the first time in years, he has an idea for Mark Zuckerberg: make a premium version of the social network.
And make it not just premium, but an expensive premium.
Stone proposes that Facebook start charging "obsessed" users $10 a month for an ad-free experience. "Maybe some special features too," Stone says. He says if just 10% of Facebook's users signed up, Facebook would rake in another $1 billion in monthly revenue.
It's certainly not a new idea. But Stone thinks he's stumbled upon brilliance.
"So there you have it. 'Fuck yeah.' Right?" he concludes.
