Facebook Shutting Down Hoax Is Back, Won’t Happen Thanks To Mad Scrilla

Facebook Hoax

We’re back with a second Facebook hoax today, this time having to do with the world’s largest social network shutting down on March 15.

This hoax has been floating around since 2011, and around this time of year, it rears its ugly face.

Here’s what the latest hoax has to say:

Dear Facebook members, Facebook is supposed to be closing down March 15th because it is becoming very overpopulated. There have been many members complaining that Facebook is becoming very slow. Records show that there are many active Facebook members and also many new members. We will be sending this message around to see if members are active or not. If you are active please send to 15 other users using copy+paste to show that you are still active. Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks will be deleted without hesitation to make more space. Send this me>ssage to all of your friends to show that you are still active and you will not be deleted. Founder of Facebook. Remember to send this to 15 other people so your account wont be deleted.

If you see this hoax floating around your News Feed, either A) let your friend know or B) reevaluate your relationship.

Facebook is a multi-billion dollar corporation, and there are no plans on it shutting down anytime in the foreseeable future.
