Facebook Shutdown Is Just a Rumor

It is really astonishing to see such an article shared all over on Facebook and Twitter! At first, I was like huh, is that really happening? Then, I thought sure whatever, every Facebook addict out there will get over it and start using Twitter, Orkut, MySpace or whatever.

This very silly article FACEBOOK WILL END ON MARCH 15th is just another RUMOR!

My justifications for this conclusion are as follows:

  1. This article "FACEBOOK WILL END ON MARCH 15th " is just posted in another WordPress blog! It’s NOT a reliable Newspaper!
  2. Facebook is a Corporation not a Sole Proprietorship, which means that the shutdown decision is not made by just one person, in this case Mark. It is done by the whole board of directors! Even if Mark is the CEO and founder, he does not have the right to shutdown the whole thing simply because he does not own it all by himself; there are other owners.
  3. Even if it was true, Facebook will NOT announce these huge changes and warn users to backup their images on a WordPress blog! Remember when privacy settings were changed or when new Facebook design is introduced? Facebook can announce whatever it wants to say ON FACEBOOK! Please check this Facebook Official Blog on how they make big announcements! 
  4. Mark Zuckerberg was announced person of the year 2010 in TIMES magazine. He won’t just walk away from that.
  5. Yes, Mark does not care about money, but he surely cares for fame and he won’t let that slip away from his hands!

Please just try to think before believing everything you read. Not everything that is called "Weekly World News" or "The Worlds's Only Reliable News" is trustworthy!
