The world recently experienced a Facebook outage, and as expected, people didn't know what to do.

During the hiccup, affected users were greeted by the following statement.

"Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can."

Later, a Facebook spokesperson confirmed that the outage did, in fact, occur, and also outlined the company's quick resolution to the problem.

The spokesperson said,

"Earlier today, a routine test caused users to have trouble accessing or posting to all Facebook services including WhatsApp and Instagram."

They continued by saying,

"We quickly investigated and restored access for everyone. We're sorry for the inconvenience."

According to Downdetector, 67,252 people reported problems with Facebook, and that's only counting Downdetector users.

The outage also was not limited to the US, but spanned the globe.

Many people's day-to-day Facebook usage was interrupted, and Twitter erupted with memes about the occurrence under the hashtag #FacebookDown.








Most of the memes were found on Twitter, hilariously highlighting the differences between the two king platforms of social media and simultaneously contributing to the memefication.




Honestly, how did society continue after Myspace and Xanga failed?

Luckily for everyone craving an update on school-age sports and their friends' MLM schemes, Facebook is back up and running.

More often than not, it's like they become different people. Sometimes people are beset by tragedy and grief and sometimes people smile wide and move on. It's a coin toss.

But my favorite post divorce personality has to be the sudden super villain. Oh honey watch out for them!

Redditor u/hyperyog wanted to hear all the tea from the divorcees out there by asking:

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is highly regarded for his delicious plates, his ability to run a solid restaurant, and, let's face it, his stage presence.

He's also a foul-mouthed Brit who is all too willing to dismantle people's self-esteems and compare them to livestock animals.
