PALO ALTO, CA –Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will be shut
down in July of 2012. Managing the site has become too stressful.


“Facebook has gotten out of control,” reportedly 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 reportedly went on to explain that starting July 15th,
users will no longer be able to access their Facebook accounts. That
gives users (and Facebook addicts) a year to adjust to life without
Facebook.


“After July 15th, 2012 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 after Facebook goes out of
business.”


Zuckerberg said 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 to a source close to a friend. “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 industry 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 17.9 billion.


But Zuckerberg remains unruffled by these accusations. He said 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 July 15th, 2012. After that
date, all photos, notes, links, and videos will be permanently erased.

    No doubt it is bogus. I found two places, posted back in 2011 that said facebook would shut down in March 2012. I found another one that said the exact same thing but it would be on July 15TH 2012. So what did they do? Initiated an IPO instead. Don't look for this to happen anytime soon.

    I really hope so, more people will become active and maybe less worries about how ugly you look on a pic you uploaded onto your page.

    It seems however that it could be a reality.

    First of all the IPO was a big loser for FB. Now selling well below the intial asking price, and investors are dumping it like crazy. And should have been seen in advance.

    They are losing some of their bigest advertisers, and that is their only source of income. When GM dumped them, it may have been the tip of the iceberg for them. Others are falling by the Wayside as well.

    Then when you take into Considration Zuckerbers disdain for those that Use his site, it would not hurt him a bit. He already has made and socked away a fortune from the "F***king Idiots that use his site" His reference, not mine.

    Riiiiiiight. And Zuckerberg is just going to toss 100 million registered FB users to the wind, without so much as a thought to selling the company rather than shutting it down...
    Who comes up with this stuff?
  • AvaC scblues... 2012/06/01 22:45:09

    I have no idea... but I have a feeling the person(s) really love the month of March... Since it was suppose to shut down since March 2011, then again in March this year.
