Facebook Shutting Down: Facebook Shoots Down Shut Down Rumor on Twitter

Is Facebook Shutting Down?

Is Facebook shutting down?  Uh, no!  The web has once again proven the fast paced impact of the social media age with another Internet hoax declaring the upcoming end of the world’s favorite Social Media platform.    Facebook has responded in kind declaring the rumor to be false by what other route — a Tweet!

What does Facebook say about the shut down rumors?

“We didn’t get the memo about shutting down, so we’ll keep working away. We aren’t going anywhere; we’re just getting started,” Facebook tweeted this afternoon.  They would have just used a massive Facebook status update, but nobody would be able to find it amongst all the Farmville posts, pics of our cousin-in-laws kids, or the next big viral video!

Did you believe the rumor that Facebook was shutting down in March?
