It’s a rumor based on a fictitious, satirical story published on WeeklyWorldNews.com, a tabloid-style website best known for such past scoops as “Alien Spaceships to Attack Earth in 2011” and “Megan Fox Is a Man.”
Facebook has become a titan on the internet. While not the money generating giant that Google has become, it does touch more peoples lives than any other single website. Thus personal production within the workspace has been affected by Facebook and the apps that are attached to it.
Facebook was recently crowned the most visited website in 2010, and was valued at $50-billion by Goldman Sachs. Do you really think it’s shutting down? Oh come on.
Seriously, STOP panicking.
