Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp & And Whole Lot Of Other Things Are Down At The Moment…. Maybe Someone Decided To #DeleteFacebook ?

Isn’t it ironic that less than 24 hours after being outed as the cause of all evil on planet Earth, Facebook and a whole lot of related services have gone down according to Down Detector? I bet that a whole lot of people at Facebook don’t feel that way as they are likely doing everything possible to get Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and the login services that they provide back online.

Personally, I would feel that the world would be better off if Facebook stayed down. But I’ll update this post with news when it (unfortunately) comes back online.

UPDATE: So this is mind blowing:

Oh well, for those on Facebook or Instagram, they can stop acting like a smoker going through withdraws now.

UPDATE #3: Not only was it a rough day for Facebook and their stockholders, but it was especially hard on CEO Mark Zuckerberg. According to Bloomberg, Zuckerberg’s personal wealth has fallen by more than $6 billion in just a few hours. I feel so sorry for him….. #Sarcasm

UPDATE #4: Facebook just posted this… Ironically on Twitter.
