Facebook crashes - Buzzfeed and Upworthy shed tears

19 June 2014

Bitterwallet - Facebook Facebook suffered a global service disruption (or, in English, it went down) leaving people unable to share awful Buzzfeed and Upworthy articles for 20 minutes!

Millions of users got the 'Sorry, something went wrong' message, with Facebook users unable to moan about it on their own Facebook walls.

There's no explanation given for the outage and over on Twitter, the hastag #Facebookdown trended worldwide.

A Facebook spokesperson said: “Earlier this morning, we experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100 per cent. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

There was still time for people to take the piss though. Kit Kat got in on it, trying to create some viral marketing for themselves, by sharing this cheeky image.



Either way, if you had trouble trying to get onto your Facebook so you could look at photos of your ex-girlfriend and her impossibly blissful life, don't worry, everything has been fixed now.

You can go back to skiving off work now.
