Relax Farmville Addicts! Facebook Not Shutting Down March 15

By Robert Paul Reyes

A rumor Facebook was shutting down wafted over the Web, forcing the hugely popular social network to deny it had any intention of closing.


The rumor was started by a satirical online website whose other news flashes include such items as `Alien Spaceships to Attack Earth in 2011` and `George Clooney Running for President.`"


Facebook will not shutdown on March 15, 2011! Facebook`s 500 million subscribers can breath a sigh of relief.

This rumor spread like wildfire on Twitter, MySpace, and ironically on Facebook itself.

Facebook is a thriving business, and extraterrestrials will have a beer summit in the White House with President George Clooney and Vice President Angelina Jolie before it shuts down.

Facebook won`t be going out of business, folks don`t have to make friends in the real world, housewives can continue playing "Farmville" at work, and pervs can continue trolling for hot college chicks to pick up.

It ain`t 2012 yet, we can still access Facebook.
