Big Ben Doesn’t Have Cancer – or a Facebook Page

In new thing in the world of social networking, appears to be people posting “fake” pages for stars and players. Such as the case with Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, who denied on Thursday that he has a Facebook page. He also denied a rumor that he has cancer.

Here is the report about that from the the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Ben Roethlisberger does not have cancer, and neither does he have a Facebook page. “There’s no truth to it. I don’t have any of that stuff,” the Steelers quarterback proclaimed yesterday. “That stuff” are accounts on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and any other social networking Web sites. Roethlisberger said he does not use them, including the one under his name that proclaimed he had skin cancer. “I had a bunch of people ask me about it; obviously it’s not true,” Roethlisberger said after yesterday’s spring practice. “We had to go on our Web site to let them know I don’t have an account. There’s nothing going on.”
