Facebook Will End on March 15th!?

False news spread like wildfire last weekend when a website published a false article quoting Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, saying that he will be shutting Facebook down on March 15.

I totally missed this news and wouldn’t have known about it if not a friend of mine posted a blog about it.

The hoax started from Weekly World News, wherein they alleged that Zuckerberg said:

“Facebook has gotten out of control,” said Zuckerberg in a press conference outside his Palo Alto office, “and the stress of managing this company has ruined my life. I need to put an end to all the madness.”

The article continued by saying that Zuckerberg will start shutting Facebook down by March 15.

The article would largely be ignored if people, alarmed by the hoax, did not post the false news on Facebook and Twitter.  People became so alarmed that some of them posted questions at
Yahoo Answers.

No, Facebook will not shut down in March 15. If Zuckerberg is tired of Facebook, then he could just sell it. Facebook is a multi-billion business and many people are aching to purchase it from the Facebook founder. If he wants, then he could allow me to manage it. :-D

  1. i dnt believe this too! :D

    Haha! You are good. You were not tricked by this hoax.

    I suddenly remembered another satire news website, The Onion.

    We still have to wait for Zuckerberg's official statement.... They've gone too sensational to gain attention....

    Actually, Facebook already issued a statement.

    They are not shutting Facebook down. World News Weekly just created a hoax that was picked-up by alarmed Facebook users and then grew because of reposting.

    Not to believe ending of fb but may believe fb wanna charged a fee and no foc would be more logical. Who would be out of his mind to chop down a huge money tree? No way! hehe

    I have the same thought.

    Zuckerberg does not need to work hard. He just let FB work for him. This is the reason why he will never shut FB down.

    This is my first time that i visit here. I found many useful thing in your website especially its discussion. From the tons of feedback on your posts, I guess I’m not the only one receiving all the satisfaction here! keep up a good job.
