Question Facebook Message? - July 8th 2009, 03:29 PM

I got this message and I was wondering if it's real, or just some fake chain letter.

It says:
"Facebook is recently becoming very overpopulated,there have been many members
complaining that Facebook is becoming very slow. Records show that the reason is
that there are too many non-active Facebook members and, on the other side, too
many new Facebook members.

We will be sending this message around to see if members are active or not. If
you are active please send to at least 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 create more space.*

Send this message to all your friends and to show me that you're still active and
you will not be deleted.

Founder of Facebook,
Mark Zuckerberg"

I doubt it's true. If they were going to do that, they're would be a pop-up style notice like when it said about usernames or I'd assume they'd just improve things their end to handle the amount of users.

That's exactly what I thought.. they wouldn't have everyone send it to their friends..

To agree with the above posts, this is a chain e-mail.
Facebook would not tell you to 'copy and paste' an important message to it's members.

I agree with the people above. It's not true. I had a msg just like that one on MySpace and MSN. Ignore it. It's not important [:

Definatly a chain mail.

Definitely a chain mail.

Thing is, as was said before, if anything asks you to copy and paste then it's just a fake.
