Facebook shuts down on Mar 15?

This is the latest and hottest news on our planet. The world's second most visited website is going to shutdown in just 60 more days. Here is a news report quoted from weeklyworldnews.com.
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.”
And one single question I wanted to ask is, Are you kidding me? Who in heaven will shutdown such a multi-billion dollar business? I wouldn't be surprised if it touches Trillion mark within ten days. Whole world is immersed in FB and the business wolves will not let it happen. Millions of Android-powered phones are sold just because it ships in with a nice facebook app. Mobile marketing has taken a paradigmatic shift with the growing popularity of Facebook. Even if Zuckerberg does choose to leave it, would you think the world will stop social networking?
The next big battle will be for the one who will lead the road to fame by building the next facebook-like app. Rumors travel faster than light. This one just did. First best joke of 2011.
