Earlier today, FaceBook went down and everyone freaked out!
FarmVille Freaks were worried about their farms, crops, and beloved Puppies going hungry. Mobsters were on edge from being forced to take a break from whacking people and all the other millions of people who have some sort of alternative internet career in the realms of social gaming no less worried about something. Oh and then there are those other people, who still use FaceBook for purposes other than gaming, well they were worried too.
Even though the outage was only for 2.5 hours, panic was widespread. The world reacted and news of the outage made both national and international headlines. According to FaceBook this is the worst outage that they have experienced in four years. So what did happen? If you want to read all the nerdy technical details about today’s outage, click here. If not, just be happy knowing that it works now and that even though FaceBook was down, Zynga was still looking out for all its addicts farmers. Unwither was turned on and Puppy starving was disabled.
Now, if only FaceBook could fix our disabled FarmVille Freak FaceBook Fan Page. That’s probably asking for too much.
So what would we do without FaceBook? What happens if it really did “break”?
