Facebook is down, the four horsemen are on their way.


UPDATE: Facebook went back online at 9:21am 19/06/2014. That was pretty scary people, 21 minutes without a pseudo social life through the inter-web. The cause of the crash is as yet unknown, I have my suspicions...

Facebook is down people, pack your bags, this is the apocalypse I  just know it.

For those trying to log into Facebook from the UK and US right now (19/06/2014, 9:00 AM) you will be greeted with the following message:

"Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can."

I would say head to Down Right Now to keep tabs on the outage, but ironically Down Right Now is, well, down right now. Try saying that three times fast. So while Facebook is down, here's three novel ideas to keep you occupied.

  1. Actually get some work done
  2. Talk to people in person
  3. Go outside and get some fresh air, maybe go for a walk
We'll keep you updated as to when the system is back online.
