So earlier this afternoon, the unthinkable happened: Facebook went down!
It’s back online now but, as expected, the whole world freaked out. Some people saw this as a possibly sinister twist while others said it’s actually a good thing because we could now get some shit done.
Some brands even saw it as an opportunity.
Ha! Good one, KitKat PH!
So, what exactly went wrong? There are no official details yet to answer that. So far, all Facebook is saying is that it “experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100%. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
Well, at least it only lasted for around 30 minutes. God knows what will happen if the two-and-a-half hour outage of 2010 (the last time Facebook went down for a considerable amount of time) happened again.
But hey, it’s all over now and we can put it all behind us...but not before checking out the hilarious meme reactions that Facebook’s little “break” generated!
So, if Twitter went down too, #endoftheworld na?
Or you could say “IT'S Facebook, that’s why we’re freaking out!”
