It’s True, You Cannot Login to Facebook 29–31 February This Year

Sophos put out an article, “Facebook will be closed for maintenance between Feb 29-31 – joke chain letter spreads”.

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. You won’t be able to log into Facebook on February 29th, February 30th or February 31st this year. Nor will you have much luck, although the messages don’t mention this, on June 31st.

Umm.. that’s because those days don’t exist.

Obviously, this was meant originally as a tongue-in-cheek humorous message, but apparently some people are actually falling for it.

Some things continue to amaze me, even after 30 years of being on the Internet.  A word to the wise: “gullible” is not in the dictionary.
