I report, you decide.  That's all I can say.  Maybe it's true.  Maybe it's
not.  We shall see.

        This has to be a fraud.  First, the site is owned by a corporation
and Zuckerberg, as an individual, doesn't have that authority.  Second, it
is unimaginable that a company with a market cap of $65 Billion would
suddenly go poof because of the personality quirks of its CEO.  What about
those investors?  Many of them are pension funds.
        The next thing we'll hear is that the Easter Bunny is boycotting
chocolate eggs.

                I think you have  been had. If there had been a real press
release like this, it would have been all over the news.

                At first I thought this was some kind of practical joke, but
it sure sounds real.  Read it and weep:

                 

                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.
