Facebook to close in March hoax

by Darren Allan

A blatantly untrue rumour has swept the net since yesterday: Facebook will close in March of this year.

The “story” is believed to have originated at the US website the Weekly World News, according to the Daily Mail.

The Weekly World News joke article states that Zuckerberg is all ready to close the social networking site because managing it has become too stressful.

They quoted Zuckerberg as saying: “Facebook has gotten out of control, and the stress of managing this company has ruined my life. I need to put an end to all the madness.”

Zuckerberg continued: “I personally don’t think it’s a big deal. And to be honest, I think it’s for the better. Without Facebook, people will have to go outside and make real friends. That’s always a good thing.”

Other articles from the Weekly World News include: “Pig Head Predicts Future”, “Yeti Spotted in New Jersey”, and of course “Alien Spaceships to Attack Earth in 2011.”

The Facebook report has still gathered considerable steam though, with many social networking addicts claiming their life is set to fall apart this spring when Zuckerberg pulls the plug. Ho hum.
