Facebook keeps going down, because it is rubbish
Facebook has been crashing a lot recently, meaning that a number of people were quick to log-in to Twitter and make jokes about giving Farmville requests to people in person, and having to post letters to friends with Candy Crush requests.
Basically, it crashed last night and that's the third time in three weeks. People weren't able to log-on at all, and then, they faced huge loading times and the like. It was an inconvenience at worst, but people went mad when faced with a message that said: "Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can."
The social network apologised to its 1.5 billion users, blaming the outage on a 'configuration issue'.
The down time hit around the world, and wasn't a local issue. Of course, a lot of companies and establishments decided to get in on the act by making gags on Twitter. Kingston Metropolitan Police in London urged distressed users not to call them about the problem, lololol.
Of course, a load of ancient people tutted under their breath and muttered something about actually leaving the house to talk to another human, face-to-face, like in the olden days when everything was better.
Some people are still having problems with it at the time of writing, but for the most part, Facebook should be working as normal now. Maybe Facebook were configuring the Unlike button?
