#FacebookDown September 2014


Worldwide outrage as Facebook went down for a grand total of 18 minutes this week, leaving its users unable to post pictures of their child’s first day back at school, giving us a break from those Ice Bucket Challenge videos, and reportedly losing Facebook a total of half a million dollars!

Here are some of the best Twitter reactions we found! –

Tweet from Future Boy: Facebook down, day 3. Holed up withh canned goods. Streets filled with dazed people carrying pictures, begging you to like them

People even called the police to report that Facebook was down…
