Mark Zuckerberg announced in a press conference outside Palo Alto, CA office that Facebook has gotten out of control and has become too stressful. Facebook will be shutdown in March 15th.
Mark Zuckerberg said in press conference: “Facebook has gotten out of control and the stress of managing this company has ruined my life. I need to put an end to all the madness. Starting March 15th, users will no longer be able to access their Facebook accounts.”
Zuckerberg said that the decision to shut down Facebook was difficult, but that he does not think people will be upset.
In a private phone interview, Zuckerberg said: “I personally don’t think it’s a big deal. 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.”
Parents across the country have been experiencing a long anticipated sense of relief.
Jon Gutaari, A single parent from Detroit said: “I’m glad the Facebook nightmare is over. Now my teenager’s face won’t be glued to a computer screen all day. Maybe I can even have a conversation with her.”

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. I just want my old life back.
