Welcome to my business blog. Please follow and RT me on Twitter.

So where do we stay when Facebook closes?

Ok! So Zuckerberg surely is one of my today’s heroes, a 26 year old maniac, who did what he did, and became one of the biggest and most known business man of the world, because he did it well.

Today stated again (after the dead birds and fish last week) by the media and laid out in a manner no one can comprehend, FACEBOOK is closing, whioch of course has been un-rumoured already as we see a total movie script of “The social network” laid out in front of us. But WHAT if we dig in a bit deeper and try to step into his shoes? Makes me doubt as we know business can be harsh and every business man i know comes to a turning point in his career where he says “He OK STOP, I am FED up with you all, Leave me the <bleep> alone (*^$Q(*^W$(Q$)Q!

Apart from him, as student starting facebook and becoming famous, god he must have a heavy job, with all the vultures on his back. I can imagine some people think like-wise and will start developing new Facebook-alikes, or at least try, stating the what-ifs to themselves. Well don’t get your hopes to high this might become a success as there can only be one. This is where it leaves me saying, if Facebook stops, I am not moving again and leave me credentials in the hands of the black-knights.

I will surely offer him an easy job and good lunch and make life fun again. Marc you are always welcome buddy.

below the original rumour

PALO ALTO, CA –Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will be shut down in March. Managing the site has become too stressful.

“Facebook has gotten out of control,” said Zuckerberg in a press conference outside his Palo Alto office, “and the stress of managing this company has ruined my life. I need to put an end to all the madness.”

Zuckerberg went on to explain that starting March 15th, users will no longer be able to access their Facebook accounts.

“After March 15th the whole website shuts down,” said Avrat Humarthi, Vice President of Technical Affairs at Facebook. “So if you ever want to see your pictures again, I recommend you take them off the internet. You won’t be able to get them back once Facebook goes out of business.”

Zuckerberg said that the decision to shut down Facebook was difficult, but that he does not think people will be upset.

“I personally don’t think it’s a big deal,” he said in a private phone interview. “And to be honest, I think it’s for the better. Without Facebook, people will have to go outside and make real friends. That’s always a good thing.”

Some Facebook users were furious upon hearing the shocking news.

“What am I going to do without Facebook?” said Denise Bradshaw, a high school student from Indiana. “My life revolves around it. I’m on Facebook at least 10 hours a day. Now what am I going to do with all that free time?”

However, parents across the country have been experiencing a long anticipated sense of relief.

“I’m glad the Facebook nightmare is over,” said Jon Guttari, a single parent from Detroit. “Now my teenager’s face won’t be glued to a computer screen all day. Maybe I can even have a conversation with her.”

Those in the financial circuit are criticizing Zuckerberg for walking away from a multibillion dollar franchise. Facebook is currently ranked as one of the wealthiest businesses in the world, with economists estimating its value at around 7.9 billion.

But Zuckerberg remains unruffled by these accusations. He says he will stand by his decision to give Facebook the axe.

“I don’t care about the money,” said Zuckerberg. “I just want my old life back.”

The Facebook Corporation suggests that users remove all of their personal information from the website before March 15th. After that date, all photos, notes, links, and videos will be permanently erased.

For non-professional and personal bloggers, writing and posting every day can be a tall order, so the good folks at WordPressWordPressWordPress have launched The Daily Post, a guide with daily tidbits of “inspiration, encouragement and advice about blogging.”

Any user who wants to participate in the challenge simply needs to state his intentions then tag posts with “postaday2011″ or “postaweek2011″ throughout the year.

Blogging more is a fairly common resolution among the digerati; in fact, it recently came up in a pollpollpoll we conducted about tech-related goals for 2011. Quite a few users said they plan to consume less social media and create more content of their own in the coming year.

WordPress’ Daily Post seems like a good enough place to start. Its suggestions for evocative post topics are great springboards for thoughtful writing.

WordPress users also have the “Press This” bookmarklet for quick, TumblrTumblrTumblr-like posting and a slew of mobile apps for on-the-go blogging, especially great for posting images.

2010 business In Review: The Fortunate Winners And The Pathetic Losers

Oh, 2010. It was glorious, but thank the almighty prancing unicorn in the sky that it’s over. It was the year of the iPad, really. Steve Jobs took to the stage of Moscone Center, sat down, and proceeded to show the world how he wanted us to interact with the Internet — several million consumers followed suit immediately. But there was so much more, too! Of course, not everyone had as good year as Apple. Or Roku. Or Amazon. Some companies and products didn’t fare so well and they’re probably looking to the riches that will (hopefully) be made in 2011.
