Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp have all been down for hours.  Apparently the problem has been identified, but the fix does not seem to be so quick and easy.  Facebook's stocks are plummeting.

Facebook is back up. I know it was hard for people to live without it for a whole three to four hours.  :crazy2:

I think the world would be better off if it just stayed down.

As far as their stock is concerned, I'm sure Facebook and its shareholders will survive.

al_infierno:
Yeah, I agree.  Though apparently a lot of small businesses who are reliant on FB's services were hurt by the outage, but that seems like a dumb basket to put your eggs into.

More interestingly, this happened the day after the 60 Min interview with the FB whistleblower.  The two don't appear to be connected, though.

Yes. And I think she is supposed to testify before Congress tomorrow. Interesting timing, indeed.

Don't have  a Facebook or Twitter account. Never have. Never will.
