Their allowance of anon to post was a bad business decision imo. I didnt hate the website, it was a disorganized and chaotic flamefest overall, but some found it to be home.
I like how they left a final message of some religious doomsday thingie...no, not the end of the world, just a few bad marketing and maintenance decisions. oh well.

when did we start listening to everything the internet said anyways? if facebook was going down march 15th dont you think that it would be ON FACEBOOK?
The Ides of March (Latin: Idus Martii) is the name of 15 March in the Roman calendar, probably referring to the day of the full moon. The term ides was used for the 15th day of the months of March, May, July, and October, and the 13th day of the other months. The Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars and a military parade was usually held. In modern times, the term Ides of March is best known as the date that Julius Caesar was killed in 44 B.C. Julius Caesar was stabbed (23 times) to death in the Roman Senate led by Marcus Junius Brutus, Gaius Cassius Longinus and 60 other co-conspirators.

I doubt that Zuckerberg could shutdown FB at this point. He could certainly take his ball and go home, but there are investors and whatnot who would not stand for FB to just stop.

I guess no one here saw the movie - the social network?
Where the entire operation is controlled by lawyers and corporate interest towards the end.
On the Ides of March (3/15) Julius Gaius Caesar suffered an assassination attempt on the floor of the Roman Senate.
Notice how I say attempt.
Mark Antony and Octavian (Augustus) his nephew secretly spirited him out of Rome to then carry out a public funeral with a shrouded corpse presumed to be Caesar’s.
Caesar lay near death for 7 days and wakened for the first time since his attack on 322.
He continued to secretly rule the Roman Republic and with the aid of Anthony, Octavian, and Lepidus lived another 12 years before meeting a natural death.
3/22 stands for the date Caesar was resurrected.
The Roman Empire just like Caesar himself did not, has not died.
In fact much like Caesar decided to do, it simply went into the shadows to do what Rome does so well...Divide and Conquer Warfare.
