If you were on Facebook earlier today you likely had a little panic attack when you tried to open it on your phone or laptop and saw…. Nothing.
It was like the entire internet had stopped working because let’s face it you use Facebook to click article’s like this one taking you to another site.
So of course, the internet lost its mind.

Thank you Twitter for being far more reliable and stable than Facebook.— Elizabeth Ray (@LizRay01) August 3, 2018

Some people at least had a sense of humor about it.
Facebook isn't down. It looks like that because they have blocked all the fake news!— Julian Barker (@Learned_Gerbil) August 3, 2018
Facebook is down and I am here in Twitter. #facebookdown— Ahmed Shafi (@ahmedshafiii) August 3, 2018
And there's at least one person who's unhappy they fixed the issue.
Facebook is down. Good. Let it stay that way forever.— J.💥 (@SparkStillTries) August 3, 2018
We disagree with him and are very happy that Facebook is working again.
