Seriously? How gullible are we becoming?

A recent copy and paste hoax about Mark Zuckerberg sharing his shares in Facebook stock has flooded the internet once again, and frankly I'm getting tired of it.

People have to know that a multi millionaire is NOT giving you money, come on people! The post circulating the internet went as follows:

“According to Good Morning America, Not a hoax! Mark Zuckerberg has announced that he is giving away $45 billon of Facebook stock. What you may not have heard is that he plans to give 10% of it away to people like YOU and ME! All you have to do is copy and paste this message into a post IMMEDIATELY. At midnight PST,Facebook will search through the day’s post and award 1000 people with $4.5 million Each as a way of saying thank you for making Facebook such a powerful vehicle for connection.”

Well guess what? IT IS A HOAX, once again. If you fall for these posts, do some research before making your Facebook friends laugh at you.
