A lot of people want to believe that easy ways to get money are true because seriously, what’s better than easy money? It’s now believed by a lot of people that Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg is giving away millions of dollars. Well, part of that is true. Yes, Zuckerberg does have plans to give away a vast majority of his fortune, but it won’t be done because you copy and past a status update. That is simply nothing more than another Facebook hoax.

Mark Zuckerberg is not giving away millions of dollars because you copy a status - Another hoax

There are currently variations of a Facebook status going around right now, and people are falling for it. The post claims that Zuckerberg is giving out $4.5 million to 1,000 Facebook users as long as they copy and past a status on their profile.

Sometimes, the status will say it’s going to the “first 1,000 users,” that post is as reported by NBC Bay Area. Other times, it says that as long as you post the status by midnight, then you’re in the running for the money.

Here is one variation.

“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.”

For some reason, it’s supposed to be made more believable because the status update says that it was on Good Morning America. Also, chances are that if something says this is “not a hoax,” then it most likely is a hoax.

As reported by the Inquisitr back in early December, Mark Zuckerberg is actually going to be giving away the bulk of his fortune. Both he and his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, made a pledge to their newborn daughter that their money will be given away through their new organization called the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

The money will be given to away to people and companies to help “advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation.” The areas initially targeted will be those of curing diseases, personalized learning, connecting people, and building stronger communities.


Snopes has also reported that there are some versions of the status update floating around on Facebook saying that you only need to “like” it to qualify for the money.
This is one of those hoaxes that really doesn’t benefit anyone, though. Anyone who shares the status or likes it won’t end up getting money, and won’t be hurt in any way either. Those that start the hoax get nothing out of it either because having others share it brings them nothing.

All in all, this is the kind of hoax that has been around on the Internet as long as social media has been around, and they are all incredibly pointless.

While Zuckerberg does want his giant fortune to help those that need it and could use it, getting a piece of it won’t be as easy and copy and pasting. Being a good person may hold a little more weight than a couple clicks on your mouse and/or keyboard.

Mark Zuckerberg does want to help the world, and he’s going to do even more than he has already done. When it comes to something that seems too good to be true, it usually is. That is what can be said for the current Facebook hoax going around right now that states you can get millions for sharing a status update.
