Facebook will end on March 15, 2011 - true or not?

An article is circulating in social networking sites and e-mail that Facebook will be ending on March 15, 2011. The "Facebook end issue" was written by J.B. Smitts on January 8, 2011 in the weeklyworldnews website saying that Mark Zuckerberg wants to shut down on March because he wants his simple life back.

Excerpt from the article:

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.”

“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.”

Some Facebook users were affected by the circulating article, but it is not true -- according to local and international reports, WeeklyWorldNews actually contains satirical and exaggerated news. According to wikipedia, the Weekly World news is a supermarket tabloid which is popular for its outlandish, supernatural and paranormal approach to news. is not yet releasing any statement regarding the issue.

  3. They could at least have waited 'til 2012.

  4. facebook has only been around for the past 4-5 years it wont be the end of the wourld if it comes to a end, i may even get to spend more time with people until the next thing comes along.

  5. Many peoples think if they dont go to Facebook a day , they will die.. Facebook is not giving me money neither house or car,and not giving Diamond to some pples like me, so if it closes, other sites will be happy bcos pple will 1 day sign up to another site.. So they should close it if they want bcos there was a site b4 Facebook came on.. and there will still remains some sites after Facebook.. I rest my case....

  6. plsss don't disban the facebook.... that's our last chance to chat, to play games, ang everything...
