Here, there are some clues that the pizza offer isn’t genuine. The "Dominos" Facebook account that posted the free-pizza promise was created today. The real Domino’s Pizza Facebook account was created Jan. 10, 2008.

"We’re nearly 60!" Domino’s spokesperson Jenny Fouracre told us in an email.
We rate this Facebook post False.
