Death of Neil Armstrong: Hoax by Social Media

Today, August 27 2013, a hoax news has been spread over the social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus) about the death of Neil Armstrong. Actually, the first man walked on moon died on August 25, 2012.

ABC News updated  a new video to commemorate the anniversary of his death. The update accidentally changed the timestamp on their mobile site, so when others saw and shared the story, it looked like it was a new story that was published on Aug. 27, 2013. What a technical fault!
