Facebook goes down; Users fear end of world, flock to Twitter for updates

What do you do when both Gmail and Facebook go down on the same day? Talk about it on Twitter, obviously.

Plenty believe it’s a sign of the end of the world; considering how much time some people spend on Facebook, it might as well be.

So, where were you during the great Facebook outage of 2012?

… and it’s back.

    Zuckerberg must have tripped over the power cord when he was bending over to kiss Obama’s ass.

      I was thinking that it was just the administration doing a dry run before the real deal begins but your theory is just as plausible.

    I hadn’t noticed. Must’ve been AFK at the time.

    As a user of both FB and Twitter I have to say people on twitter have a lot of nerve making fun of how much time people spend on FB. You know, pot meet kettle. My friends tell me they don’t get twitter. I was intimidated at first and FYI NOBODY on twitter is friendly enough to help anyone out either! I was just determined! The whole thing still seems rather narcissistic! I just can’t help myself though, LOL!

    Any reasons given why the sites were down? Was this anonymous again?

    I was trying to get on it when I realized it was down. Shrugged, put on my running shoes and went for a 6 mile run instead. People who freak over things like that need to step outside once in a while.

    Al Gore created the internet… Al Gore can destroy the internet. (totally tongue in cheek)

    What is this “Facebook” of which you speak?

    I’m happily not on Facebook *or* Twitter.

    I was asleep when Facebook went down, so apparently I didn’t miss much.

      Apparently I didn’t miss a whole lot, either. Although I couldn’t help but think of “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It” by R.E.M. when I read the topic… #justsayin
