this is a hoax people!!!!!
For the US$50-billion company, it’s highly unlikely.
A hoax claiming that Facebook chief executive officer and president Mark Zuckerberg planning to shut down the social networking site has gone viral, with ABS-CBN News’ Twitter account getting peppered by questions regarding the rumor’s veracity.
The hoax, perpetrated by the website of American supermarket tabloid Weekly World News, claims that Zuckerberg held a press conference outside his Palo Alto office to announce Facebook’s closure.
“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,” Time magazine’s person of the year awardee allegedly said.
WWN, which runs stories often based on aliens, paranormal phenomena, the supernatural, and weird creatures, also claimed that Facebook users need to remove their photos from the site.
WWN ran the Facebook story on its website alongside an article claiming that alien spaceships will attack the Earth in 2011.
