Facebook closing down??? Nah it's just a Hoax

Facebook the social networking site that triumph over others such as Friendster and Myspace. Facebook has more than 500 million users world wide and it's increasing by the hour. The know the story and how it came to be just watch the movie "The Social Network". People use it to connect with family and friends around the world, some play games, some use it to make new friends, some even use it for bad intentions. I don't think I need to stress how widely use, many who uses the internet do own an account.

Few days ago a website states that Facebook is closing down, Here is the link to the story :Facebook shuts down. The link was widely spread on Facebook itself.

Of course this is just a hoax, who in their right mind who earns billions would decide to shut this down to have his old life back. Even if he did want his old life back, he would have sold the company away. If facebook closes down, it affects all the game makers of the social network. Many of their incomes are generated from it, example EA acquire Playfish games and expanding into social networking games. Story of acquisition. What's funny about this is the comments that were started in the thread. The picture I've captured below shows the latest comments where some people have already realised it's a hoax. When the thread was just started may thought that it will be gone and most of them are really sad.

Facebook being shut down has it's good and bad. The good it reduces crime where people were stalked using Facebook, people announcing their suicidal attempt, and also increases productivity because many employees spend lots of time on it. The bad it connects people around the world, friends and families separated by the sea which will cause many to lose methods of communication.

I like Facebook because it's one way I reconnect with my old friends and keeps me updated about their lives. Occasionally I enjoy playing the flash games that are available. If Facebook is gone it wouldn't make too much of a difference in my life unless I do business with it.
