In what is most likely the most horrible thing to ever happen ever, Facebook has gone down. No, your computer is not on the fritz. No, your wifi is not out. Yes, the world is coming to an end. So stop trying to refresh that page, Facebook ain’t coming back. For now, anyway.
Have no fear though, nerd paradise site Techcrunch is hot on the case:
If you’re currently writing us an email to tip us that Facebook is down, you can stop — we’ve gotten a few hundred of those in the past few minutes. Yes, Facebook appears to be down at the moment. I’m currently getting a DNS failure message (above), others are apparently seeing other things. This is a problem not just because the site is down, but Facebook’s omnipresent Like button is also completely down, and so is Connect, and Platform — in other words, the entire Internet (or a good percentage of it) is feeling this pain. We’ve reached out to Facebook to see what is up. More to come.
With a few more hours until closing time on the west coast, how will those milions of users waste time until they clock out?
Facebook users are surely all wondering the same thing: Will my Farmville crops make it? What if I miss that funny post about what my friend’s Shit Zsu just did?
Come on, Marky Mark, don’t let your friends down! We know you have a super hot ladyfriend and a new movie coming out, but don’t forget about the little guys who made you the youngest billionaire in the world.
Remember, we can be a fickle bunch. And… MySpace is only a click away.
