What are the chances that a whistleblower goes on 60minutes and less than 24hrs FB is down? Must be related

It's really sad when people's lives revolve around a social media platform, NOT ME. Thank God I still remembered how to use a PHONE. DUH.

Facebook did this as a distraction and it worked. It showed millions of people how the world could stop!

The outage was for FB to redo its algorithms after that scathing report on 60 minutes Sunday. It was obvious. I mean, how stupid do they think we are?

Is outage the new word for virus? Is “outside force” the new word for hacker? Just call them hero!
