How did you survive the 30 minute Facebook outage?

Tweet: How did you survive the #Facebook #Downtime ? #socialmedia @MarketerKelly

Facebook is back and up and running after a 30-minute outage which affected the social network’s web and mobile site as well as connected apps. Those of us who tried to access the site this morning was left twiddling their fingers. I was greeted with a message saying “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.”

A Facebook spokesperson told CNET :

‘Earlier this morning, we experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100 per cent. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.’

Facebook have not disclosed a reason just yet, however I believe there are some hackers that are claiming responsibility. The outage caused some panic-stricken tweets, here are a few of my favourites…

In 2004 Facebook was founded by  Mark Zuckerberg and has grown to be the second most popular site on the Internet, according to ranking firm Alexa, second only to Google.

 

So, what did you do with your 30 minutes?  What funny tweets did you see?
