Facebook Goes Down For Twenty Minutes, Loses Half a Million in Revenue.

Around noon on Friday, the unthinkable happened as Facebook went offline for around twenty minutes. It quickly came back up without issue, but that it was out long enough for plenty of freaking out: A bunch of people literally called 911 over the outage, prompting one local police departments to clarify, via Twitter, that Facebook going offline is not in any way a police matter.

The story is too old to be commented.

Why hasn't there been any viruses that only attack stupid people? WHY?

Just when you thought people were stupid enough....

is that how important facebook is to people that they need to contact their local PD?

Its a sad world we live in.

There are :P Those ads or email's that you clearly know are fake? The same people calling the police for Facebook being down are the same people clicking on those.

if some virus like this would be possible to be made than 95% of regular fb users will get effected by it

No doubt, I agree there. I know to many who live on FaceBook and have open their entire lives to everyone. People don't understand some information doesn't need shared. Can't believe these nutty addicts called police about their crack source being down oh! My the end of the world('! ')
