Will Facebook shut down March 15th?

Well, the following article cannot really be taken seriously, but imagine what would happen. Would you feel lost? If this was to come, you’d regret not using Facebook as a stepping stone to make new real life friends. Cyber friends may make a nice safe distance relationship with some, but what matters is the real human connection and you don’t need an electronic device to experience those.

FACEBOOK WILL END ON MARCH 15th!:

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.

  6. dj09

    obviously it is a joke look underneath the article and it is categorized as “humor” because people have nothing else to do with their lives then stalk people so they probably thought it was funny to say this

  7. TheGame

    @liyahh
    I really hope that your post was a joke. It was probably the stupidest thing i’ve ever read and for the sake of humanity i hope you are just a troll.

  9. Facebook Will End on 15th March 2011…

    Mark Zuckerberg, credit jdlasica. Will you believe this? Facebook will be shut down on 15th March 2011? Mark Zuckerberg said that, Facebook has gotten out of control and become too stressful to manage. Because of that, he decided to close Facebook on 1…

  10. v-rub87987

    Mark Zuckerberg just made an awesome decision. so now people, we’ll have our old life back to. and get a chance to go outside the confines of this little world named facebook and face our life like a book, living it day by day like reading it page by page. and we can get the chance of having real friends and write new chapters of the book we are facing that is called LIFE.

  11. rey

    Funnier if this was true. Lots of people would totally cry because their lives are dependent on facebook. mine doesnt so i probably would celebrate

  12. killerboy

    OH NO!!!!!!!!!! DON’T!!!!!!!! ZUCKERBERG…… PLZ DON’T SHUT DOWN THE FACEBOOK……. :'( PLZ……..

  13. harmedkiller

    if facebook shut down i will personally ask my gang to murder zukerbeg i wont live six months i bet him this…..while would open the site at first if he cannot manage it zukerbig is giong to get murdered months after this site is shut down.killer crew newyork city.

  14. A.normal.teenage.girl

    What was your life back then Mr. Zuckerburg ? Did you really think that after shutting down facebook and ruining people’s lives which includes people losing jobs and loss of entertainment and communication to people all over the world would bring you back to your old life back ?

  15. Daryl

    lmao! This is the funniest story i have this year. I know Mark Zuckerberg. He is human. No human being can walk away from money.

  16. eselu joseph

    seriously? this guy needz to take a break and chill out …it would be better if he just sold the damn thing ….itz really not fair ….he should think it thru..

  17. Kira

    I don’t understand this at all. He says “the human connection” is more important than using an electronic device to see people. But think about it this way. What if you’re like me, and probably millions of other people on facebook, and use it to talk to my family and friends around the world? You’re taking away the one connection I have to them, Mark, just know that.

  18. Allie

    This is fucking stupid. He says he “wants his own life back”, right? It’s not going to be the same after this, dude. You’re not getting your old life back, because you’ve created something that has influenced so many lives here. You’re not going to be forgotten, and it’s not going to be the same because some people need this.

  19. jajaja

    oh please u ppl r funny…u guys act like Facebook is what keeps u alive…oof he shuts it dwn then o well u kno damn well ppl will migrate back to Myspace or some other social site…all the drama FB brings does need to end go outside and breathe air or something its not the end of life as we know it because theres no FB…what did u do before FB??…idc if its shut down o well if its sold the good for him…no1 needs to see the pictures of u acting stupid at a party anyway

  20. JP Roberts III

    With Facebook potentially going public within the next 18 months? Get Real.

    When you’re dealing with ANYTHING on the internet you should apply the tried and true maxim: don’t believe anything you hear and only half of what you see. Before you forward the next “panic” email, take 2 minutes and use the internet as a tool. Ninety-five times out of a hundred whatever it is, is just a rumor or hoax.

  21. It is just a false rumor with false news website. I believe that Facebook will be around for long time unless they announce otherwise from their website or legitimate news such as CNN.

  22. Annabelle

    I SO hope this is true ..
    Facebook ruined us.
    I mean c’mon people … get a life ..!
    at least i know I’ll have mine back :)
    More time for me to study! 😀 No more failing tests! 😀

  23. Garcia

    bummer.
    well look at it this way people, we know that fb has become an integral part of our daily lives now and we spend hours on it. but take a moment to actually think about it… in a way we’ll finally be free! we can live real lives with real face to face conversations with real people. sure, socializing won’t be as easy but we did it before there was facebook and we’ll do it after its gone as well. at least we won’t have a million total strangers as “friends” and have a few but good, close friends.
    that is, if this ain’t a hoax 😛
    cheers y’all! 😀

  24. mhm

    BULLSHIT! BULLSHIT……………….. WTF HOW IS HE GONNA SHUT DOWN FACEBOOK. I GUESS WHEN FACEBOOK IS GONE, PEOPLE ARE GONNA START POKING EACH OTHER, SENDING THE MESSAGES THROUGH PAPER AND START TALKING SHIT WHEN THEY GET MAD. IS THIS HOW FACEBOOK IS GONNA END? FIRST THE WORLD ND NOW FACEBOOK? EVEN THOUGH I DONT BELIEVE DAT DA WORLD IS GONNA END, BUT SERIOUSLY LMFAO. GRRRRR………… BULLSHIT

  25. ekolog

    you dont get it. its not about the job or time. he realised what facebook did to people. to YOUNG people. IT IS MADNESS. it started like a school poject. he nevere wanted to make it this big

  26. i cant belive it facebook is my life facebook is my brother it is my sister my parent
    how can you get stress from something that made millons of money 4 u
    i cant belive it what are you gonna do after that
    ar u gonna open a shop and get married and have children are u gonna do that u know people a gonna hate u 4 that

  27. Ruby

    The whole “my life revolves around Facebook” is kind of stereotypical.
    I’m sure that every single person who uses Facebook doesn’t revolve their
    entire life around it. I use Facebook though to keep in touch with old high school
    friends that I once lost contact with. Using FB to talk with them is very convenient,
    but now with FB shutting down soon, I guess I’ll have to find another website.

    I hope Zuckerberg will indeed have his old life back and enjoy it. The guy deserves it
    if managing FB causes as much stress as he says it does, but like some other person said,
    couldn’t he just sell his FB to some other company rather than simply destroying it?

    Anyway, whatever goes, I’ll just have to go with the flow and adapt with whatever comes.
    Facebook was very fun while it lasted.

  28. you

    kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
    hahahahhaahhahakakaskkakakakakaskakkakakkkrkrkarklkarkarkrkarkarkarkarkarkkarkarkarkarkarkrkakak

  29. Lol, to many people are ADDICTED to facebook, if he shut it down it would be a good thing because most of you all who are on there are loosing there ‘ social skills ‘ and how to talk to people in real life, I’ve heard people use ‘ LOL ‘ instead of laughin’ before. It’s insane what lengths people go to, to get on facebook and other social things on the computer. Get outside, HAVE a life :l Geez you people are nuts..

  30. charlie b

    Some people need to learn how to spell and some need to do research before spreading rumors. If you wanna know if Facebook Is shutting down, go to the source, MARK. And for Eli789345873532414698, people use lol in text messages too, LOL. So dont blame that on facebook. People, with or without facebook, there will always be some type of way to socialize electronically…

  31. steven mcmain

    well he is right,i 2nd dat…finally,he had made his conclusion 2 tke out fbk..so may it be……

  34. trunksfreak

  35. This sounds like POLITICAL PROPAGANDA to me. There’s been some serious political tension since the TEA Party, Republican and Democratic parties have gotten on FACEBOOK so I wonder what’s really going on here.

  36. puneet

    hey tats not good !!!!

  37. skiny

    we need to F@!~#$%^&* evrybody before it’s too late!!
    an appeal to the FOUNDER:
    why shut down if youre the “bridge” that connects lives to other who lives somewhere out there??
    long waits are gone because this, ROADS meet, people had found there hopes, love, life and living!
    Memories of the past has united once again, how could this be?? FACEBOOK IS THE LIFEBLOOD OF SOCIAL NETWORKING WITHOUT IT ALL WILL GRIND TO A HALT>> DESOLATE.

  38. vijay b tupe

  42. Yna

    OMG! Is this true?or is it just a rumor cause I don’t think it will really shut down cause they said many companies have already invested on facebook!

  43. THANKS MR. MANAGER, NOW I CAN SAVE MY MONEY 4 SOMETHING MORE PROFITABLE THAN THIS VIRTUAL FRIENDS FINDER SEARCH FORUMN….” NO OFFENSE”…. BUT U’VE MADE ME REALLY MEET REAL FRNDS 4 SURE… FANKS 4 THAT,……

  44. No. You guys cant shut it down. Facebook lets us have fun and not just getting addicted to it. It lets us talk to people more. It’s like texting, but like some people can’t text with their phones. People wont just stick to facebook 24/7 and it still gives us life, so dont say we have no life-.- . Not everyone will make fake friends. It’s their desicion to accept someone they don’t know. You can make new friends that you know and become best friends. People can have their old life back; no facebook. If you dont want facebook to get you addicted then don’t go to facebook no more. It’s your choice. People make choices and they get what they deserve. Don’t shut facebook down(:
    I kno this doesnt really make sense but it’s whats on my mind O.O

  45. AndyWo

    We don’t need no water let the mofo burn!!!!!!!!!____________burn.
    Woot Woot!!!!! Flush it down the gutter. You people are so pathetic you make me sic.

    “{whining}how can I contact my friends who are far away without FB?” –email, mail, smoke signals…anything is cooler than relying on this. Are u all serious? Apparently no one realized this is from the paper that created Bat Boy as its mascot (c the link@top).

    Who cares? You know: if it WAS shut down suddenly this year 2011, then it WOULD be the beginning of the END OF THE WORLD 2012. It would be a government conspiracy. They would do it so people could not communicate worldwide events and ideas to each other (since you all rely on it so much). And they would have your information saved, you could not change it, and you could not start putting false information on it. (Although they probably can pick any date and see all personal info up to that date). But they would shut it down to throw everyone into such a turmoil, divide and conquer, distract and conquer, hopefully you people will wake up. I’m at my friend’s house and he loves FB, I can’t believe him!!!

  46. jazzvee

    Zuckerberg…… plzzz don’t do this….i can’t think abt my life without facebook… am beggin u not 2 do ths….fb is da only site by which i got all f my childhood frns bac again ….i would b missin ma frndz if u do this…

  47. THIS IS SOME BS… HE KNEW B4 HE OPENED THIS IT WAS GOING 2 B PROBLEMS.. FACE BOOK IS HOW SOME PEOPLE STAY IN CONTACT WITH THEIR FRIENDS OR LOVED ONE’S AROUND THE WORLD!! DELETE SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHO IS CAUSING TROUBLE OR WHO HAVEN’T BEEN ON IN A WHILE. U GOT RICH NOW U WANT 2 SHUT US DOWN.. SO NICE OF U!!

  48. Churchill

    Yea, shut her down. Rumour is anyway , Facebook was partialy financed by the CIA and possibly others for record keeping and gathering info. Hell, they already probably new more about my life than I did even before Facebook or computers. Let the whiners whine.

  49. LOLyouguysarepathetic

    Seriously? It’s funny how you all think your lives will end without facebook. There’s other sites like myspace, twitter, etc. that you could go on. There’s other ways of communicating too. Like email, skype, paper mail (yes, there’s still paper mail out there for you facebook nerds that stay on it all day), cell phones, etc. Seriously, get a life that’s away from the internet. Go talk to someone face-to-face. Not facebook-to-facebook.

  50. Shwayzexoxo

    This is mad stupid , like seriously , telll that guy to suck it up and be a man and grow some !!!! Facebook shouldnt be shut down for thisss
