Facebook Ending on March 15?

Jan 9, 2011

Only a day after congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head in Tucson, Arizona, one of the hottest search engine terms on as per Google Trends, focuses on whether or not Facebook will be shutting down for good on March 15, 2011.

The rumor has reached viral proportions throughout the Internet and a group has already been started on Facebook to prevent the social media giant from shutting down.

It's unclear as to how the rumor was started in the first place but a recent CNN article claiming that the recent Goldman Sachs investment was the beginning of the end for Facebook likely played a role in a rumor that is otherwise ridiculous.

Goldman Sachs invested $450 million in Facebook recently, while a Russian firm added an additional $50 million.

Facebook will not be shutting down on March 15, 2011 or at any other time in the near future.
