Facebook shut down hoax spreads like fire

by Bradley Wint on January 8th 2011 at 9:32PM

Internet faux news site Weekly World News posted an outrageous story that Facebook will be shut down on March 15th 2011, due to the stress it has put Founder Mark Zuckerberg through.

Normally this type of news would not even be worth our time and effort, but an unfortunate situation occurred where thousands of viewers actually believed the story and shared it on Facebook. Over the past hour, 40 of my 320+ friends shared this story, and I’ve received a couple messages and emails about it from “worried” fans. I expect that the situation will get worse, sparking more controversy over the Internet.

Here is a snippet from the article:

PALO ALTO, CA –Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will be shut down in March. Managing the site has become too stressful.

“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.”

Zuckerberg went on to explain that starting March 15th, users will no longer be able to access their Facebook accounts.

“After March 15th the whole website shuts down,” said Avrat Humarthi, Vice President of Technical Affairs at Facebook. “So if you ever want to see your pictures again, I recommend you take them off the internet. You won’t be able to get them back once Facebook goes out of business.”

So just to confirm, this is a fake story by a faux news site, similar to that of The Onion and Chive. As a reminder, always fact check before passing on stories, or else what happened today will keep happening over and over (like this trend will ever stop anyway)… oh yea, use some common sense. Also, with a company estimated at being worth over $50 billion, why would anyone even think of suddenly shutting it down. As a friend said, it would obviously make sense to sell it off rather than just kill it all together.

    ya common sense.. lolz

    what do you want to choose,

    am internet page worth billions or

    your old self worth nothing. LOLZ!

  • Rucha

    I think the problem is because of the portrayal of Zuckerberg as a bit of a loose cannon in “The Social Network”, some people actually consider the possibility of doing something as crazy as pulling the plug on a billion dollar website just because “It’s too stressful”. Another problem is that I think some people are so addicted to facebook that the shock of the idea of facebook going caput just like that temporarily blurred their reasoning.

  • Horsecrazy709

    This has been a rumor since the beginning of august 2010. My classmate flipped a b!@]h about it to me and I told her to calm down. It seemed totally out of the blue. And facebook knows that if they shut down everyone would just move to another website. Myspace is always an option for us high school students. And they would love to have us as well

    1. Mark has stated his dream is to help make the world more connected and more social.
    2. He’s worth BILLIONS. No company would ruin a billionaires life.
    3. A movie just came out about his product along with Jesse Eisenberg giving Zuck the rep of a BAMF (Badass motherfucker).
    4. “So if you ever want to see your pictures again, I recommend you take them off the internet. You won’t be able to get them back once Facebook goes out of business.” << That there obviously shows it was by one of the people who were blinded during the whole Facebook Privacy outburst, it was written by someone with the mindset of "These people need privacy, they need to take their photos down, Facebook has no privacy", even though Facebook never held a gun to their head forcing them to post the pictures.

  • commoner

    must be other social network who hates facebook!

  • http://www.facebook.com/dennis.v.roda Dennis Valladolid Roda

    it doesn’t make sense too since FB is in talks to go public… why go into the prospect of an IPO if you’re going to close down anyway? it doesn’t make any sense.

  • WWF RAW GM

    But in my opinion, I don’t think Zuck will let his “dream” fall to others hand. Imagine if you were the one that created it and off a sudden, you need to sell it to other people. Like the article said, “money is not a big deal.”

  • Kingpmb

    Why shut down Facebook. Its a good networking site for people who take care of business and it gives older people a chance to connect with old high school friends that they haven’t seen in years. Why shut it down because you can’t handle the pressure of running a site. Why not give it to somebody who can handle the pressure instead of shutting it down. Hell if its that serious give it to Tom from MySpace and his geeks to run it or sell it to someone who is willing to run it. If it’s really not about the money like you said then you would not shut it down and let somebody else run it. Do not shut it down. Your going to mess up the best social network out to date. When you shut it down your going to affect not just you but those around u and the billions of people who have a Facebook. That’s just something I think u all should really think about.

  • Keith_KG

    Ive heard from a very reliable source that it may be shut down, but not on that date and not for that reason. Facebook was connected to Wikileaks so government may have it shut down.

  • https://www.blogtechnical.com Bradley Wint

    Please stop spreading propaganda. IF the government had to investigate anything, it would be account related to Wikileaks officials and supporters, as has happened with Twitter last week. It would not affect the rest of users.

    Ppl think and learn how to read first. It says.

    So just to confirm, this is a ” FAKE”story! by a faux news site, the company estimated at being worth over $50 billion, why would anyone even think of suddenly shutting it down. As a friend said, it would obviously make sense to sell it off rather than just kill it all together.

    It says It clearly that FB is not going to shut down!!!!

    like why shut down facebook for if you cant handle it then pass it on 2 somebody else who can handle it that all cause i love facebook i cant live with out i found so many friend on facebook and i knew since i was 4 and i found family that i havent even meet in my life so i think facebook is a very good site 2 be on.. if you cant handle on mangeing your site then pass it on 2 somebody who can handle it that all you gotta do you just upsetting people by shutting it down…….#PASS IT ON 2 SOMEBODY WHO CAN HANDLE IT DONT SHUT IT DOWN

    Greetings, is it that the article quoting Mark Zuckerberg’s remarks about the shutdown is fake ? Or did Zuckerberg really make those remarks as a publicity stunt?

    Reminds me of the Michael Jackson and the Elephant man’s news sensation that kept going like a runway train.

  • Chamiemarieb

    facebook has become part of our lives if you shut it down people around the world will no longer link to each other just like relatives and family from other countries who used facebook to link to their loves one from other sort of place around the world..I know it has been stressful but you also consider what result you brought it to every millions or billions around the world, you changed their lives, you ease their burden of the miss they felt when they are away to other countries to work.. what you’ve experience today i think there are still other solution..Hope you also understand us FACEBOOK USER…we will be sad if you shut it…

    i didnt completely read/understand your post, only the part where you said about communicating to your relatives from other places. and I do agree on that. “facebook” did something good to me, I met my half sisiter(whom I didnt even met personally since birth) here at “facebook”. I am very thankful that someone had create this “facebook”, because of that. BUT Im one of those who want to shut this down! WHY? I have known many people who was victim by this. this ruined there lives. LITERALLY! Im not totally blaming “facebook” on what happened to them, but those illiterate, abusive, uneducated and other…(just think whats that other!) people! I think “facebook” should end! we should just be thankful that we experienced/tried to use this. This had done enough good! and bad! “on communicating to your relatives” you can E-mail them. RIGHT? video chat? any? there are still many ways.

    it only depends on how they used it LITERALLY, but what I was sad of. . . some of those people who are uploading their photos might be some very important or unforgettable memories of there life. Like me I just upload photos what are important for me(some of it ^_^) I cant even put it on an album cause it is just too many of it, they cant keep it on their homes, some of them have no much space inside their house to keep it. And so when they shut it down it says that “sorry for it” those pictures are just gone.
