Facebook Deleting Inactive Users Hoax – 'Facebook Overpopulated' – Hoax-Slayer

This story was first published on December 19, 2007

Messages claim that Facebook is becoming overpopulated and that members who do not send the information to others within two weeks will have their accounts deleted.

Brief Analysis:
These warning messages are pointless hoaxes and should be ignored. Facebook is NOT running out of space and your account will NOT be deleted if you do not send on such messages. The warnings are nothing more than newer versions of earlier hoaxes that have targeted a number of other online services, including Hotmail and Yahoo.

Hi,this is a message from the creator of facebook and it tells you a little bit about what is going to happen to facebook on the 15th of march. Please don’t send this back to the person you received it from. Dear facebook members, Facebook was supposed to be closing down march 15th because it is becoming very overpopulated. There have been many members complaining that Facebook is becoming very slow. Records show that there are many active facebook members. We will be sending this message around to see if members are active or not. If you are active please send to 15 other users using copy+paste to show that you are still active.*Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks will be deleted without hesitation to make more space. Send this message to all you friends to show that you are still active and you will not be deleted. Founder of Facebook… Remember to send this to 15 other people so your account won’t deleted
