Attention Facebook and Twitter users:
The "news" that Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will shut down on March 15 because he finds running the company "too stressful" is false.
I repeat, false.
It's a rumor based on a fictitious, satirical story published on WeeklyWorldNews.com, a tabloid-style website (formerly a weekly newspaper) best known for such past scoops as "Alien Spaceships to Attack Earth in 2011" and "Megan Fox Is a Man."
It isn't news. It barely even qualifies as a rumor.
