Relax, Facebook Is Not Shutting Down

You didn’t get the memo?  Either did Facebook.  Rumors have been flying ever since the Weekly World News reported on Saturday that the social network would cease operation on March 15th.  The satirical news site cited stress as the reason Mark Zuckerberg had chosen to pull the plug.  Facebook actually plans to expand its operation.

From the Wall Street Journal:  Weekly World News, for those who are not familiar with it, is basically like the Onion, only not quite as funny. Some choice headlines also currently on the site: “U.S. Trades Carrot Top for Canadian Pennies,” “Mike Tyson Pigeon Fetish” and “Republicans to Read Bible on House Floor.”

The Facebook news seemed to fool some of the more than 10,000 commenters on the article, although it’s tough to tell whether they actually believed the news or were being tongue-in-cheek.

Don’t worry, the nation’s #1 work distraction is alive and well.  Please remember to water your crops.
