About four hours ago, Facebook went down. Like really down. Many users worldwide were unable to access the social network at all, and those who did saw a service operating at a well-below optimal level. The outage lasted for as much as an hour for some – it was pretty bad. Productivity soared. Zuckerberg wept.
Apparently, the struggle was so real, that people called in to report it as an emergency – at least according to Sgt. Burton Brink of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
