"Is Facebook shutting down?" So reads many people posting to their accounts tonight, as a rumor that Facebook is shutting down by mid-March continues to spread. Well, you need to chalk this one up to being

the latest falsified rumor on the internet, and yet another attempt by someone to have a few laughs at the expense of others.

Don't believe every rumor that you read, especially ones like this, which just sound too hard to believe. Usually it is something that will be proven false, much like the recent death rumors of Eminem, or the story of other celebrities dying in car crashes. When you come across a story that sounds like a rumor, always make sure you don't buy into it unless you can confirm the source they are listing.

Much like most moronic rumors, this one is being sourced on the web-sites that are trying to purport it as being true. No, Facebook is not shutting down on March 15 as some of the rumors have stated, and no, Facebook is not going to close its doors. The web site simply makes too much money to close its doors, and you can believe that if it was true, you would see breaking news on your television as well as on reputable news sites.

So go back to enjoying your regularly schedule Saturday night activities, and rest assured that when you wake up on the morning of March 16, 2011 that you will still have full access to all of your Facebook friends.
