Thousands fall for daft Facebook hoax

Written by


Believe site will shut down March 15
Thousands of Facebook users appear to have fallen for a rather absurd and downright silly hoax.

For some reason they took a satirical piece published by tabloid Weekly World News seriously. The article was posted January 9 and it alleged that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had had enough and wanted his old life back. Hence, Facebook would shut down March 15.

One would think that it takes an extremely naïve person to take any of this seriously, but it appears that there is no shortage of gullible or downright stupid people in today’s world. We rarely describe anything or anyone as stupid in our articles, but really, in this case no other word would do them justice.

For a few laughs, check out the comment section on Weekly World News.
