Facebook Down for a Few Minutes: Did the World Survive?
Facebook went down this morning in an apparent worldwide outage, throwing social media users into a panic and boosting the use of rival site Twitter.
With no Facebook on which to share thoughts for -- what, about 23 minutes? -- Twitter was abuzz with various quips and laments about the temporary freeze-out.
"There go the five most productive minutes of my life," Simone Sebastian tweeted when the service came back online just now.
Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, was down, too.
