No Facebook Is Not Closing Down On March 15th, The World May End Though
By on January 10th, 2011

Over the weekend I saw many of my hassled friends on reading and believing a report from a satire website about Facebook closing down this March.

Facebook Shutting Down

The report which came out Weekly World News said that Mark Zuckerberg had said that they were shutting down Facebook because it had gotten out of control. The report went ahead to quote the Vice President of Technical Affairs at Facebook, saying that they would close down the website on March 15th.

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.

However, not one word of this news is actually true. The website in question is a satire site which posts fake news which is then consumed by gullible people who believe in it, or people who just want to have some fun. A similar site called Faking News (http://www.fakingnews.com) exists and puts up spoof stories on Indian and international issues.

As for my friends and several other thousands of people who got fooled. Facebook is a lucrative business and only a fool would decide to close it after securing billions of dollars as investment, and Mark is not to be counted as one of those fools. Facebook also confirmed the same through an update on Facebook.

We didn’t get the memo about shutting down, so we’ll keep working away like always. We aren’t going anywhere; we’re just getting started.

So please think before believing and spreading panic. We also have rumors that the world is coming to an end in 2012. Unfortunately all requests to God for confirming or denying this fact have not been answered. We will post an update as soon as we get more information from God Smile.

Have fun and continue Facebooking.

    Yes I guess if you’re into playing April Fool type pranks, best not to do it on April 1.
