Facebook No Religion or Swearing Campaigns-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

This is a viral post spreading on Facebook that alleges that accounts will be cancelled if any members are caught sharing religious beliefs or swearing.

The Truth:

These are hoaxs and Facebook made no such announcements.  This according to two articles published on  March 4 and March 8, 2014  by EpochTimes.

The later article said that the posts, “which claims to be from CEO Mark Zuckerberg, is one of many fake posts going around on Facebook, ‘which claim accounts will be banned if they’re caught “swearing or making references to marijuana.”

Both articles noted the manner of the punctuation of the date and odd wording as an indication that this message was not “written by a professional corporation.”
