You may have seen a post similar to this floating about Facebook today…
THANK YOU, MARK ZUCKERBERG, for your forward-thinking generosity! And congrats on becoming a dad!
Mark Zuckerberg has announced that he is giving away $45 billion of Facebook stock. What you may not have heard is that he plans to give 10% of it away to people like YOU and ME! All you have to do is copy and paste this message into a post IMMEDIATELY. At midnight PST, Facebook will search through the day’s posts and award 1000 people with $4.5 million EACH as a way of saying thank you for making Facebook such a powerful vehicle for connection and philanthropy. 😎
It is an absolute load of rubbish, a hoax, untrue, lies. Whatever you want to call it, $4.5 Million will not be given away at midnight. Not a single cent will.
Don’t feed the trolls and don’t share such nonsense on your Wall News Feed.
In fact pretty much all news sources online are covering this in case you need any further proof.
