    somebody steals my first couple paragraphs, but changes the last one?  He even took the picture I used.

    I'm so upset right now.  Nothing upsets me more than having my work stolen.

    Here's MY link: http://hubpages.com/hub/Is-Facebook-Shu … March-15th

    Here's HIS link:  http://www.squidoo.com/is-facebook-shut … march-15th

    I noticed that I recently had a decrease in traffic and earnings for this article, and I wonder if this is why.  Sigh.

    What are my options with this?  Will Squidoo make him take it down?

    I also confronted the author.  I'm curious to see how he responds.

    Yes, it is plagiarism. They just cherry-picked sentences from your hub. I say report him/her to Squidoo ASAP.
