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.”

Zuckerberg said that the decision to shut down Facebook was difficult, but that he does not think people will be upset.

“I personally don’t think it’s a big deal,” he said in a private phone interview. “And to be honest, I think it’s for the better. Without Facebook, people will have to go outside and make real friends. That’s always a good thing.”

Some Facebook users were furious upon hearing the shocking news. “What am I going to do without Facebook?” said Denise Bradshaw, a high school student from Indiana. “My life revolves around it. I’m on Facebook at least 10 hours a day. Now what am I going to do with all that free time?”

However, parents across the country have been experiencing a long anticipated sense of relief. “I’m glad the Facebook nightmare is over,” said Jon Guttari, a single parent from Detroit. “Now my teenager’s face won’t be glued to a computer screen all day. Maybe I can even have a conversation with her.”

Those in the financial circuit are criticizing Zuckerberg for walking away from a multibillion dollar franchise. Facebook is currently ranked as one of the wealthiest businesses in the world, with economists estimating its value at around 7.9 billion.

But Zuckerberg remains unruffled by these accusations. He says he will stand by his decision to give Facebook the axe. “I don’t care about the money,” said Zuckerberg. “I just want my old life back.”

The Facebook Corporation suggests that users remove all of their personal information from the website before March 15th. After that date, all photos, notes, links, and videos will be permanently erased

The magazine posts stories about aliens showing up in 2011. Looks like another Onion to me.

I'd like to think Goldman Sachs wouldn't just throw millions of dollars in the toilet like that, but given recent events, I really couldn't be too sure.

Yeah, Weekly World News is one of those tabloids you find next to the cash registers in truck stops, not a lick of truth in any of them. Especially since they are starting the public stock option soon. If they were to start selling stock then BOOM! shut down like that I would think that there would be criminal stuff happening and people would be facing federal judges.

Its not even a rumor, its just a hoax.

I read a thing on the internet the other day about how supposedly Johnny Carson caused a month long shortage of toilet paper in the US. I guess he went on his show and made a joke that there was no more toilet paper being produced for a while for whatever reason and that people needed to stock up. The very next day the product flew off store shelves and stores tried rationing it but were unable to. So then when there was toilet paper available it sold out fast because people who didn't know it was a joke had been hearing about this "shortage" so they continued the hoarding. It took several weeks before the county was back to its normal toilet paper level. Whether or not this is true I do not know but it sure is funny!

My first response said it was a hoax. I don't remember the Carson thing & I watched Carson for years. I remember he told everyone to call the Detroit PD to allow someone to join who was too short. At that time there were height requirements. They were flooded with calls.

May as well add my nonsense to the pile.

Facebook is an automated cash machine. Is here to stay, will go offline and take it's dying breath only if the gazillions they are raking in ever dry up.

Though truly believe a world without facebook, would be a much better world. Think I'm the last person on earth who hasn't joined, lol.

Though point of fact ... that's not true. I do have a bs acct on fb. But it was strictly for exploratory purposes. The day I willingly hand over every intimate detail of my life to a megacorp like facebook, will never come.

Any profile I submit to them will be filled with nonsense info. Give em a name like Harry Ballz or summin. Not that it matters anyone who thinks there's any privacy left in this day and age needs to rethink reality.

Every detail about me is stored somewhere already. Doesn't mean I'm going to serve it up on a silver platter though. Facebook ... is only concerned with facebk's interests. They let people play with their toys. But don't do so cause they like you or want to be nice. They want to know what color underwear you're wearing and what you had for lunch yesterday.


:D

How did that prediction work out for you?
