It's the first calendar quarter of the year, and with February and March on the visible horizon, we're seeing the annual reappearance of "Facebook is closing" hoaxes.
Even if you think they're funny, please don't help them to spread...
Seriously folks, you should know that Facebook warning about a virus *burning* your hard disk is bunk
Facebook users have been sharing a warning about a virus that "burns the entire hard disk".
It's nonsense, of course. When will people learn?
A warning spreads on Facebook about "Talking Angela", an app that gives your children some animated cat chat.
Malheureusement, it's all too simple for people to share warnings - rather than check if the facts are true.
Is a branch of McDonald's really charging African-Americans an extra $1.50?
Of course not, but thousands of Facebook fans are spreading the story regardless.
Messages have been spreading on Facebook claiming that the social network will be closed between February 29th and February 31st, 2013.
And, of course, it's kinda true. Don't try to log in on June 31st either...
Facebook users are spreading a warning to their friends and family online about a supposedly malicious application called "My birthday calendar".
But are there real lessons to be learnt about sharing information on Facebook?
