People Acting Stupidly: Facebook Goes Down
Apparently Facebook went down for a bit on Friday. I didn't even realize it, but apparently people really freaked out. How do I know they freaked out? They called 911!
You can't make this stuff up. According to The Wire, Facebook was down for about 20 minutes on Friday and in that time people were calling 911 to report the problem.
It went so far that one police department in California had to Tweet this out:
"Facebook is not a law enforcement issue, please don't call us about it being down, we don't know when will be back up."
Who in their right mind would call police on such a non-issue?
How about this? Five things you can do when Facebook goes down again:
- Go outside
- Make a sandwich
- Take a nap
- Go to StumbleUpon.com (VERY addictive)
