Message purporting to be from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg claims that the network is considering implementing new video ads that will run automatically every ten minutes and stop people from using Facebook until they are finished running. I'm sure that a number of people will be against this, so for your sake, we are giving you a say in whether or not these ads will be implemented.
According to a Facebook driven message which purports to be from none other than Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg himself, Facebook is thinking about implementing very intrusive auto-play video ads on the network.
But, claims the message, users who are against the implementation of such an intrusive system can register their disapproval simply by sharing the message. However, while Facebook is actually looking at implementing a form of video advertising, the above message does not accurately describe these proposed ads and makes absurd claims that have no basis in fact. The social network still hasn't finalized the format of the video ads, but it's been shopping the product around to agencies, looking to lock down commitments for the first available slots in June or July, according to three executives briefed on the product.
The article also notes that the ads are likely to be capped at 15 seconds in length and that the system will ensure that users will see no more than three video ads per day.
Hoaxes and scams that claim Facebook is going to start charging users have been around for a long time. Facebook makes money via advertising and charging users at this point doesn’t make any sense. As always, be sure to check out the legitimacy of such claims on trusted news sites before reposting messages like this on Facebook. A lot of people on Facebook are sharing a message about a Privacy change on their profiles these days, disclaiming rights of their contents and encouraging people to share the same message. Facebook users: Please ignore any messages stating that you must share the message with 20 other users in order to stay active.
Hoax-Slayer issued a report on the latest round of hoax messages, which claim to come from “the Facebook Company,” and appear to be aimed at prodding users to call a phone number that likely belongs to a scammer or telemarketer.
According to this message, which purports to be from “the Facebook Company,” you must send the same message on to 20 people to “stay active.” The message warns that your account will be disconnected if you do not send the message as instructed. This version may be a rather lame attempt to trick gullible recipients into calling a scammer or telemarketer.


Perhaps the dumbest part of this hoax is the implication that you can actually call Facebook “support” and get a human support person to answer. Facebook will also be taking into account how many people delete posts containing certain links. But Facebook did clarify that it’s not going to start deleting stories, nor is it going to be reviewing them for accuracy.
We all have at least one friend or relative who loves to post obvious hoaxes on Facebook because they believe it to be true, hopefully that’s going to start happening less and less. The brother of the Connecticut school shooter, Adam Lanza, said through a spokesman Sunday that he never conducted a Facebook interview with the New York Post and that any statements or postings attributed to him were fabricated.
We have no tolerance for comments containing violence, racism, vulgarity, profanity, all caps, or discourteous behavior. The message claims that users can share the message to register their opposition to the proposed video ads.
We are currently looking into playing video ads as a way to increase the profitability of Facebook. The message claims that these ads will not only play automatically every ten minutes but will also stop people from actually using Facebook until the videos have finished running, thereby forcing people to watch and wait.
Firstly, the message is certainly not from Zuckerberg or anyone else at Facebook as claimed. However, users who share these posts will likely also share posts that lead to malicious websites. We talk about geeky creations, weird incidents, funny LOL stories as well as latest of technology, gaming, gadgematic, and social news. It also advises you to call a listed customer support number if you suspect that the message is fake. It mirrors a number of earlier hoaxes that claim that Facebook or another online service will terminate your account if you do not send a message to a specified number of people. No legitimate company is ever likely to ask users to prove that they are active by sending on a silly message.


If you do spy a hoax without that annotation, you can report it in exactly the same way that you’d report spam or abuse.
So if a number of people have flagged it as a hoax and a number of people have deleted it, then Facebook’s algorithms will ensure any other posts with that same link will be seen by fewer people. It also promised that satire would not be affected by the new changes, how that’s going to work has yet to be seen.
Thank you for partnering with us to maintain a courteous and useful public environment where we can engage in reasonable discourse. And sharing the message is not a way of voting against the implementation of video ads as suggested in the message. These ads will stop what you are doing every ten minutes and play for anywhere from 15 to 60 seconds.
Secondly, the proposed video ads will not play every ten minutes, nor will they stop users from interacting with the network while they run. But, of course, there is no suggestion that the ads will actually stop people from continuing what they are doing on the network or that the ads will automatically run every ten minutes. The problem is that many users are apparently taking the message literally and are passing it on in the mistaken belief that they are actually voting against an upcoming video ad proposal just by sharing.
However, as Hoax Slayer points out, the initiators of this disinformation campaign have even gone to the trouble of making a banner. And, thirdly, even if Facebook management were to ask for user feedback about a proposed change to advertising on the network, they would not do so by instructing users to share a message or photo.
In reality, such a highly intrusive implementation would likely equate to corporate suicide. Like I always say, try to be realistic and next time do a little research before fooling yourself by sharing these stupid messages.
