“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 January 15th, users will no longer be able to access their Facebook accounts.  That gives users (and Facebook addicts) a year to adjust to liwithout Facebook.

“After January 15th, 2013 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.”

Yahoo! I hate facebook was not a sensible concept in my opinion. Why do you want to message a person on facebook and the whole world can read it? I know our site is similiar a social site but in a better much more sensible way. Our site is not about uneventful things going on mindless chatter and the like its about spreading the truth and getting that truth out there to as many who want to be informed and stay that way! That is sensible and has a purpose!

  • The claims are untrue. Facebook will certainly not shut down in January. The false rumours are derived from a fictional "news" story published on the "Weekly World News" website, a publication known for churning out utterly fanciful tales disguised as news items.

Detailed Analysis
This rumour, which is rocketing around cyberspace causing fear and consternation among Facebook fans, claims that Facebook will shut down entirely on January 15, 2013. According to the rumours, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has decided to shut down the site because managing it is too stressful and because the site has "gotten out of control".

However, the rumours have no basis in fact. Zuckerberg has certainly not announced any plans to shut down Facebook. The rumours are derived from a fictional story first published on the website"Weekly World News" on January 8th, 2011.

Weekly World News is the online version of a notorious tabloid newspaper of the same name long renowned for publishing utterly fanciful stories disguised as news articles. Virtually nothing published on the website is accurate. The "Facebook shutting down" story is apparently intended to be satirical. The site regularly features fake news articles about alien encounters along with fictional gossip stories targeting various celebrities.

The original version of the hoax listed a supposed closure date of March 15, 2011. But with that date well and truly in the past, the hoax was "updated" and then proclaimed that the shut down would take place on March 15, 2012. After the March deadline had also passed, yet another version surfaced which claimed that the shutdown was to take place on July 15 2012. And the latest variant moves the closure date to Janaury 15, 2013. New versions, with new - and equally spurious - shutdown dates are likely to continue appearing in coming months.

Thus, Facebookers can breathe a sigh of relief! Their much beloved network is NOT going to be shut down any time soon.

Incidentally, this is not the only hoax that has claimed that Facebook users may soon lose their accounts. Another widespread message falsely claims that Facebook is becoming overpopulated and is therefore deleting the accounts of users who do not repost the message.
