If Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, want you to have their billions of dollars, they won't post that life-changing news on your Facebook News Feed. Odds are, you'll get a phone call.
Yet, a lot of people fall for a variety of Facebook hoaxes that center on Zuckerberg sharing some of his billions with people in need. The hoaxes typically include a News Feed post like this one.
Facebook recently warned its 1.6 billion users not to click on hoaxes like this one. Plus, ABC's "Good Morning America," the early morning TV show mentioned above, confirmed that it didn't say, "Not a hoax."
This hoax, and others like it, say Zuckerberg and Dr. Chan are giving away $45 billion. That part is true.
Through their Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the new parents announced they'll be giving away 99% of their Facebook shares. Which amounts to roughly $45 billion.
