was out for several hours today (and so was Instagram). Employees tried to
get into the building to fix whatever was wrong, but their key cards didn't
The only way Facebook could let people know what was going on was
by posting messages on its rival, Twitter.
Twitter, on the other hand, posted this tweet, which I found
The technical reasons for it were too complicated for me to
understand, but several people have offered possible reasons for the shut down.
We all needed to take a reality check, and learn to live
without social media for a few hours???
The cat stepped on the power strip breaker. Happens at my house all the
To suppress all the indelible truth that is posted and shared.
The cats in the tubes all took a nap at once.
* Someone forgot to turn it off and back on again.
According to detection websites, by noon, there were over five
million reports that Facebook was down. In America alone, there were over
123,000 reports of the social media giant being down.
There were some very clever responses from people talking about
what they did during the six hours Facebook was out.
I wrote the Great American Novel and lost 20 lbs.
Got to sit with some kids that said they were mine. They
seemed like great kids.
me too! There these 2 kids in my house said they have my last name and have

Paced the floor, tore my hair!!!

I was totally confused. Kinda like when the power goes out and I discover
there are other people living in my house. I don't know who they are, or
when they will leave, but it make me very nervous.

Built the Andrea Doria out of balsa wood
I binge ate 25 boxes of Hostess cupcakes, wandered around
crying and chewing on my cuticles, only to end up in rehab, writing songs

of my life.
I didn't really notice that Facebook was down until Jeri texted
me to tell me it was. I had tried to get to
Yvonne in the
Bush to see today's photos and noticed that I could get text but no photos
anywhere on Facebook.
