Attention all Facebook users: You will not be able to access the social-networking site on Feb. 29, 30 and 31.

“Share this message with at least 15 of your friends for the best chance of alerting everyone,” reads a message circulating on Facebook. “Many people will try to log in from February 29 to 31, just to find the site closed down for those days with no warning.”

The message is absolutely right. You can’t use Facebook on those days, because those particular days don’t exist in February this year.

It’s those people who are targeted by Facebook hoaxes and scams, in the assumption that they’ll believe the scams and forward them to their friends.

Instead of becoming one of those people, ask yourself whether something’s too good to be true, and then trust your instincts. That’s true both on Facebook and on the Internet as a whole.
