Facebook Deleting Inactive Users Hoax



Outline
Messages claim that Facebook is becoming overpopulated and that members who do not send the information to others within two weeks will have their accounts deleted.

Brief Analysis
These warning messages are pointless hoaxes and should be ignored. Facebook is NOT running out of space and your account will NOT be deleted if you do not send on such messages. The warnings are nothing more than newer versions of earlier hoaxes that have targeted a number of other online services, including Hotmail and Yahoo.
