Last night I get this message from a friend of mine on Facebook and it’s obviously a hoax. It has typos, it is signed off by Mark Zuckerberg (which would much more professional) and the idea of it is simply stupid — the notion that we would be booted off Facebook for not actively using the site in 2 weeks. I decide to post it here & tell my feelings about it — which are still true 16 hours later: it was a STUPID (and I capitalize each letter for a big reason) hoax! There is so much time wasted including mine since spending the hour or so now that I’ve spent on it based on something some person decided to get MANY people to waste their time on.
Well, it was entirely a waste…I guess. I recently broke through 200+ views a day and just the day before, I broke the record again by shooting to 249 views. After posting this message about how stupid the post was, I noticed a weak day of only about 70 views start to shoot over 200 less than an hour after I posted it to my blog. It continued to climb and climb and climb. By the end of the day, I CRUSHED previous records and ended up getting 580 views by the end of the day.
I also landed on the Top Posts of WordPress at #37.

Despite the temporary (and continuous residual effect of the post — up past 200+ already and it hasn’t been more than 6 hours since the start of the day after the big 580 views day, I still believe it was a HUGE waste of time. If several hundred people or maybe as many as thousands searched on phrases like the following because of the stupid hoax, the creator of the message should be labeled a waste of our precious oxygen in this world. This person should be banished from posting again on Facebook:
