Facebook goes down; life goes on

Posted August 1, 2014


Facebook was offline worldwide Friday, and regular users were feeling withdrawal.

Reports of outage on the social network popped up around noon in the United States. The realization was quickly followed by jokes about a related productivity increase on rival social network Twitter. 

By 1 p.m., Facebook access had largely stabilized, although the site was still showing some performance issues.

    The more toned down replay:

    Always good to see Seankelly continuing his liberal flag waving. Maybe you should watch The Channel few do, MSNBC, a little more often and you'd catch their liberal imperfections more than you apparently do. Who's your favorite liberal host Sean, that former MTV chick that slobbers every word she spits out as she tries to imply that everyone except her is a racist? Or maybe it's big Ed, the guy filled with so much rage he's just a sandwich away from a cardiac? Or maybe it's the great Al Sharpton, the guy that has made a career out of crying racism? Or maybe it's the far left Matthews, the guy that was so upset this week over the lawsuit BHO will be facing that he almost blew his toupee clear off the top of his head?

    I can't wait to hear who your favorite is. Cheers.

    Facebook goes down and the government has no idea what people are doing!!!

    Fox, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, & NBC all have to start saying the truth since nobody can post a falsehood to back up there stories!!!!

    Wake up people, there is a real world outside and it is falling apart because you are more concerned about who posted what to who.

    They said the end of the world would be whimper, it's a person with a Smartphone doing Dumb things!!!!

    Can't wait to see the propagandists try to spin this.

    COMMON_SENSEY - "Yep, Faux News is almost as bad as "MSNBC" and their extremist Liberal agenda. Two sides of the same coin."

    Perhaps, but MSNBC has not been caught in lies like FAUX news has (the cost of Obama's trip to India, the seven dollar a gallon gasoline, etc).
