Mark Zuckerberg to give everyone $1000 to stop sharing stupid Facebook hoaxes

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has promised every Facebook user $1,000, but only if everyone stops sharing stupid hoaxes on his social network.

The move comes after timelines have become inundated with ridiculous claims being shared by people stupid enough to think they could get a lot of money for doing literally nothing but sharing a Facebook post, or to believe their account is at risk of hacking because somebody cloned them.

No, Facebook isn’t limiting you to 25 friends’ status updates

The social networking giant’s mysterious algorithms are a cornerstone for the latest popular hoax.

Despite what you’ve heard onĀ Facebook, the social network isn’t going to limit status updates in your news feed to 25 preselected friends.

The real news is much scarier: People are falling for a Facebook hoax — again.

My Charitable Gesture

Yesterday, I was feeling vaguely charitable (read curious) and so released everyone from cyber-Coventry (my ‘Blocked’ list). There were approximately 40 and they were no doubt overwhelmed with the joyous news of my gracious and forgiving act.

Would you Adam and Eve it, by lunch today ‘The Witless Six’ and ‘The Irksome Eight’ have already made compelling cases to be returned permanently, have their English teachers investigated, their priests investigated or their parents sterilised.

Alarmingly, some of this special ensemble hold positions of responsibility in society.

And yes, I am a grumpy old git with a moderate chance of making my fiftieth (please refer to quote/tattoo below).

Have a great day!
