Facebook Was Down For 14 Minutes, And The Internet’s Response Was Hilarious.
Yesterday, the sky turned black and clouds formed overhead. Babies cried, dogs howled, and little old ladies fell to their knees, wailing in despair.
That's because yesterday, Facebook went down.
Though the outage was only for 14 minutes, the Internet reacting with swift, somewhat predictable outrage. Luckily, most of that outrage was hilarious. See how people really feel about the brief demise of Facebook below.
Facebook is down. A billion people look up from their phones for the first time in 9 years. Everything seems so modern.— innocent drinks (@innocent) September 24, 2015
