If you were left feeling frustrated over Facebook and Instagram’s downtime earlier, you’re certainly not alone – users all over the globe were affected by the popular platforms’ apparent hiccup, and some of their reactions were downright hilarious.
In a tweet this morning, Facebook reports, “We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps. We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.”
They later go on to say, “We’re focused on working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, but can confirm that the issue is not related to a DDoS attack.”
While the masses flocked to Twitter to commiserate, the Victoria Buzz office was basically immobilized without the use of our Facebook and Instagram accounts – so what did we do? Used this as the perfect excuse to go get ice cream!
At least misery loves company, so without further ado here are some of the greatest Twitter reactions in response to the Facebook and Instagram outages:
