Facebook was down for many of us today, and it wasn’t pretty. As a public service to our loyal audience, we felt the need to cover the outage as comprehensively as possible on Twitter. In an effort to offer perspective on these sad several hours in Internet history, we offer our top suggestions for occupying your time in the event the unthinkable happens again.
Ten Things to Do When Facebook is Down
- Rekindle your relationship with productivity, hygiene.
- Call one of your 5,000 Facebook “friends” on the phone, enjoy the awkward silence.
- Bring down Twitter with incessant “Facebook is down” tweets. Cue apocalypse!
- Did somebody say crochet party?
- Experiment with offline poking. Keep your lawyer’s number handy.
- Take a Digg “power user” to dinner. Bring extra cash.
- Party crashing with Michael Arrington!
