Facebook users should be one the lookout for messages that state Facebook will close on March 15th 2012. Despite what is stated in the messages being circulated on Facebook, (Example Attached), they should not be taken seriously, re-shared or re-posted. The fact is: this is nothing more then a rehash of a hoax that circulated last year around this same time and the messages currently being circulated are pointing to the exact same website that started last years hoax..
