It came, it went. It came again, it went again. And now it’s back. Again.
You’ve seen the statuses claiming that Mark Zuckerberg is giving away 4.5 million shares of his Facebook stock to everyday Facebook users.
Don’t be one of those people.
“All you have to do is copy and paste this to your page and post” the copy claims.
It even goes as far as saying “This is not a hoax !!! It’s on Good Morning America !!” which actually just screams “hoax” even louder, if you ask us.
So why not do it? You could be getting yourself closer to a nice chunk of change. It’s worth the risk, right?
That’s because you also risk being one of those people who will fall for anything they see on the internet, so long as it comes packaged inside of a decent argument.
It’s the Donald Trump of Facebook statuses. Think about it.
We recommend before posting/sharing/believing any of these types of Facebook statuses, you check with the folks over at Snopes.
They know what’s up and have repeatedly reported this particular hoax as being nothing more than a pile of internet poo.
