Rumors have just surfaced that Facebook, the world’s largest social networking site, may be closing its doors for good this coming March. Reports are running wild that Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, has announced that he will be shutting down the site for good.
Zuckerberg allegedly held a press conference outside his home in Palo Alto, California, where he said, “Facebook has gotten out of control and the stress of managing this company has ruined my life. I need to put an end to all the madness.”
He continued to say, “….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.”
Many people remain skeptical, as the news has only been published in blogs and not on any mainstream news avenues.
Recently, Facebook has enjoyed success as investment giant Goldman Sachs and another investor valued the company at $50 billion. With this kind of success at hand for the 26 year old entrepreneur, quitting now seems very unlikely.
Nonetheless, thousands of people are taking to the internet in the hopes of determining whether this breaking news is indeed a hoax, or if the social networking site actually is throwing in the towel.
