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.

  • Danny Wheeler

    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!

  • BeeKaaay

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

  • Michelle

    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)

  • RightThinking1

    What is this “Facebook” of which you speak?

  • Finrod Felagund

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

  • MissDiane47

    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
