People from Facebook have officially released an official statement putting an end on speculations of the social networking giant shutting down on March 15.
The hoax of Facebook shutting on March 15 was reported to have all started from an online tabloid site Weekly World News (WWN). The site was said to have even posted some insider scoops about Facebook’s CEO himself saying that he wants to go back to a more relaxed life without Facebook.
With all the speculations about the issue, Facebook’s Director of Communications Larry Yu dismissed the news as silly. He said,
"Please help us put an end to this silliness... We didn't get the memo about shutting down and there's lots to do, so we'll just keep cranking away like always. We aren't going anywhere; we're just getting started."
I myself did not believe that Facebook is shutting down do abruptly. Most recently, the social networking giant with more than 500 million users has been valued by investors to be around $50 billion. With such great amount of money, one is just indeed too silly to abruptly announce that he is closing shop.
