Facebook nak tutup?

| No comment

Terkejot gak bila dengar. Facebook (FB) cakap nak tutup 15hb Mac ni. Aku no komen (macam jawapan artis lak kan nak ngelak jawab soklan). Aku tak kisah pun. Nak bukak ke, nak tutup ke, ada aku kisah? FB bukan menda utama dalam idop aku… So, aku ok jer…

 

Tapi, betul ke dia nak tutup? Bodoh ler Mark Zuckerberg kalo nak tutup FB time dia tengah meletop² sekarang ni. Satu langkah memperbodohkan diri. Tapi, selepas dig around the web, sebenarnya citer tu hoax jer. Al-maklum ler, citer tu pun keluar dari berita tabloid US pun. Weekly World News. Tabloid yang popular dengan cerita UFO, Bigfoot dan lain². Memang tak buleh nak percaya!. Kat bawah ni aku boh apa yang ditulis dalam website berita tabloid tu…

 

PALO ALTO, CA –Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will be shut down in March. Managing the site has become too stressful.

“Facebook has gotten out of control,” said Zuckerberg in a press conference outside his Palo Alto office, “and the stress of managing this company has ruined my life. I need to put an end to all the madness.”

Zuckerberg went on to explain that starting March 15th, users will no longer be able to access their Facebook accounts.

“After March 15th the whole website shuts down,” said Avrat Humarthi, Vice President of Technical Affairs at Facebook. “So if you ever want to see your pictures again, I recommend you take them off the internet. You won’t be able to get them back once Facebook goes out of business.”

Zuckerberg said that the decision to shut down Facebook was difficult, but that he does not think people will be upset.

“I personally don’t think it’s a big deal,” he said in a private phone interview. “And to be honest, 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.”

Some Facebook users were furious upon hearing the shocking news.

“What am I going to do without Facebook?” said Denise Bradshaw, a high school student from Indiana. “My life revolves around it. I’m on Facebook at least 10 hours a day. Now what am I going to do with all that free time?”

However, parents across the country have been experiencing a long anticipated sense of relief.

“I’m glad the Facebook nightmare is over,” said Jon Guttari, a single parent from Detroit. “Now my teenager’s face won’t be glued to a computer screen all day. Maybe I can even have a conversation with her.”

Those in the financial circuit are criticizing Zuckerberg for walking away from a multibillion dollar franchise. Facebook is currently ranked as one of the wealthiest businesses in the world, with economists estimating its value at around 7.9 billion.

But Zuckerberg remains unruffled by these accusations. He says he will stand by his decision to give Facebook the axe.

“I don’t care about the money,” said Zuckerberg. “I just want my old life back.”

The Facebook Corporation suggests that users remove all of their personal information from the website before March 15th. After that date, all photos, notes, links, and videos will be permanently erased.

Buat masa sekarang, tak der lagi pengesahan daripada Facebook Corporation ataupun dari Mark Zuckerberg sendiri. Kalau ada pun, dah tentu CNN buat liputan kan? Ni bila tengok derang nyer website, tak der pun dalam tu. Breaking News pun tak der. Kalo dak, mesti semua media dah buat liputan. Yer dak? Kita tunggu je la apa derang nak buat nanti. Betul atau tak, kita tunggu je la. Tapi bagi aku, tak de maknanyer derang nak tutup.

 

Korang punya pendapat lak? Cemana?

 

p/s : Ala Twitter ada, apa susah! Hehehe…

 

UPDATE

 

Ha! Kan aku dah cakap! Tak der nyer Facebook ni nak tutup. Nak kena saman si Mark Zuckerberg tu? Dah la kena suntik modal, lagi la nak tutup! Wat pe nak percaya memenda tu. Hehehe… Ni update nyer yang aku dapat dari link dari post kawan aku kat FB…

 

Facebook Shutting Down Rumor Goes Viral: Site Said To Be Ending March 15, 2011

It's not clear how it started, but a ridiculous rumor that Facebook is shutting down is spreading fast on social networks.

The hot rumor -- evidenced by Google Trends and gaining traction on Twitter -- says that on March 15, 2011, Facebook will be closing down. Not taking a day off, not undergoing maintenance, but ending entirely.

The rumor has led to such frantic tweets as, "Facebook will be shutting down on March 2011? I hope not!" (@MissAyl) and "So the rumor is Facebook is shutting down....please don't jump to twitter & ruin my social networking experience" (@jjelksboss).

Facebook users are also concerned. Says one: "Facebook is shutting down on March 15, 2011 for good D: Is there any way we can stop this!?!?" And a group has already started to stop Facebook from shutting down.

Ironically, Yahoo announced last month that its "Yahoo Video" will be closing down on the date in question, March 15, 2011, and videos can be seen for the last time on March 14. But that hardly means it's taking the rest of the Internet down with it.

Just a day ago, an opinion piece published on CNN said that the recent Goldman Sachs investment was the "beginning of the end" for Facebook. That post went viral with more than 5,000 Facebook "likes" and could be partially to blame for the ensuing panic.

Whatever the reason for this rumor, it's safe to say that as a site with more than 500 million users and a $500 millon investment from Goldman Sachs recently, Facebook won't be shutting down anytime soon.

Pueh ati?

 

UPDATE 2

 

Memang Facebook tak akan tutup, sebab CNN pun dah buat coverage tentang kabar angin yang hampeh dari Weekly World News. So, ini apa yang dilaporkan kat website CNN tu…

 

Mark Zuckerberg

 

(Mashable) -- There's a silly rumor exploding on the Internet this weekend, alleging that Facebook is shutting down on March 15 because CEO Mark Zuckerberg "wants his old life back," and desires to "put an end to all the madness."

We have official confirmation from Facebook Director of Corporate Communications Larry Yu that the rumor is false.

We asked him via e-mail if Facebook was shutting down on March 15, to which he responded, "The answer is no, so please help us put an end to this silliness."

He added, "We didn't get the memo about shutting down and there's lots to do, so we'll just keep cranking away like always."

Let's think about this for a minute. Would Facebook decide to shut down the company just a few days after announcing a round of funding, consisting of $450 million from Goldman Sachs and $50 million from Russian investment firm Digital Sky Technologies, on a valuation of $50 billion?

The spurious report was started by a site to which we refuse to link, known for its reports of impending attacks of alien spaceships and false reports of a Michelle Obama pregnancy.

The fact that this absurd hoax spread so efficiently makes us wonder: Will people believe anything?

Blog ini telah saya tulis semenjak tahun 2007 lagi sehinggalah sekarang. Ada kalanya saya rajin menambah entri dalam blog ini, tapi bila kemalasan melanda, selalunya saya akan berhenti menulis berminggu-minggu lamanya. Kalau bila datang rajin pulak, sehari sehingga 2-3 entry saya but.

Saya tak terikat untuk menggunakan satu bahasa saja dalam blog ini. Kadang-kala saya gunakan Bahasa Malaysia yang rasmi. Kadang-kala jugak, saya gunakan bahasa pasar. Bahasa Inggeris pulak saya gunakan bila datang rajin nak speaking. Little known selain dari dua bahasa ini, sekali-sekala dalam Bahasa Jepun. Asalkan faham sudah!
