PALO ALTO  – Facebook continues to deny rumors it is shutting down on May 15th of 2013.  WWN, however, has confirmed that it is true.

On January 9th, WWN’s ace reporter, J.B. Smitts, broke the international story that Facebook was going to close down on January 15th because Mark Zuckerberg wanted to return to a normal life.   The story caused a worldwide sensation, and J.B. Smitts has been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for breaking it.
Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg has publicly denied the rumors, saying, “Facebook is not going to close down.  Not now, not ever.  We’re just getting started.”
David Ebersman, the CFO of Facebook, and the man working with Goldman Sachs on the new Facebook financing deal said, “many people feel that the deal with Goldman Sachs will lead to a change in Facebook or that we might shut down so the government won’t force us to go public.  All of those rumors are false.  We are going to be stronger than ever after May 15th.”
But WWN has spoken to insiders at Facebook who strongly contradict the public statements of the executive management team.

Sources inside Facebook tell us that the company is already making plans on how to handle the big shutdown.  “We can’t just turn it off on May 15th, 2013.  There will be a revolution,” said one insider.  “We have to prepare our users for the end of Facebook and offer them ways to keep their social networks alive.”
Zuckerberg maintains that one year is enough time for users to prepare for the demise of Facebook.  It also gives rival sites time to build up their user base.
There were rumors that Zuckerberg himself was going to appear on the Oscars or a the Super Bowl,  but Zuckerberg did not show up at either event.  New rumors are that Zuckerberg will make “an important announcement to the world” about the future of Facebook when he meets with President Obama in the White House on April 15th.
Meanwhile, there is panic all around the globe as Facebook users (and addicts) are frightened that they may lose their social networking community.  Top celebrities Tyra Banks, Mila Kunis, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Justin Beiber, Ashton Kutchter, Carrot Top, Meryl Streep, Danny Bonaduce and the Real Housewives of New Jersey and Atlanta are all panicking about losing Facebook.  “I’m addicted to Facebook,” said Tyra Banks. “Without it, my life is over!”

An online petition was started just hours ago to help persuade Zuckerberg and Facebook to remain open.
The organizer of the “Please Do Not Shut Down Facebook Petition”, Fritz Barnkopf, said, “we hope to get a million or more signatures before the Oscars, so Mark Zuckerberg will reconsider his tragic decision.”
WWN is following this developing story closely – constantly talking with Facebook insiders.  We certainly are rooting for Facebook to continue because it’s an important part of our own social media strategy and leading source for our site visits.
WWN is your only reliable news source on this – and all – breaking news stories.
And now… one of the MANY videos from panicked Facebook users about the shut down:

  1. hey there and thank you in your information ? I've certainly picked up something new from right here. I did alternatively experience several technical points the usage of this web site, as I skilled to reload the web site a lot of times prior to I could get it to load correctly. I were puzzling over in case your web host is OK? No longer that I'm complaining, but slow loading cases instances will very frequently affect your placement in google and can damage your quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am including this RSS to my e-mail and can glance out for a lot more of your respective fascinating content. Ensure that you replace this again soon..

  2. Stop this rumours about its gonna shut down. it wont shut down and Mark Zuckerburg will waste his time if he meets president about facebook. MARK ZUCKERBURG, I DARE U NOT THINK ABOUT CLOSING DOWN FACEBOOK BECAUSE YOU CANT THINK ABOUT YOURSELF AND NOT OTHERS. OTHERS ARE HAPPY WITH FACEBOOK SO WHY ON EARTH YOU SPREADING RUMOURS ABOUT CLOSING DOWN FACEBOOK. You can wait until 2016 if you want to close down but not until 2014 really comes up

  3. For fucks sake, you people are hopelessly gullible. Just look at some of the other stories on the site. "How to sell your soul to the devil." "Alien spaceships to attack Earth in March 2013." "Earth to collide with Nbiru on December 21, 2012." "7-year old solves secret of the universe." It took me all of 5 minutes of reading to determine this is a fake news site.

  4. Facebook is disgusting. a lot of people have commited suicide because of it. shut down fb i dont care who is against this post. facebook has turned into a pool of ignorance and its not helping anyone anymore

    • I agree with you….I have an account n loads of pics on it but truth be told, it's not a place that I would consider hold my true friends. I could care less if it shuts down. Honestly, I think it needs to be done but this is most likely a hoax anyway.

    • i agree completely fb should shut down.it is causing all kinds of problems.its ruining relationships and so much more.it became a dating service instead of being a way to keep contact with friends. and to play games on, if you really want to keep in contact with your friends you have a phone.

    • Facebook is what you make of it. People killing themselves is not because of Facebook it is because they were not strong enough mentally to deal with criticism from total strangers. I could care less about someone I have never met saying something negative about me. It's all about realizing that FB is a virtual community not a realistic one.. And yes there is allot of ignorance going on on FB but you have the choice to follow or block the makers of said ignorance.. Again I say that FB is what you make of it..

  5. Yes! It is really a great decision! I wanna you shutdown on facebook please! That's because facebook was really disgusting no one respect own personal, facebook peoples got out of control, ruining their life, there are many bullying, big deal time terrible show poses,show naked these picture, open your mind show video, their young children can see nasty pictures cause they will stressful, depress, scare, hurt, careless and crazy. That's how sadly I think better end on facebook for REAL!
