Facebook Up, Facebook Down: Here’s How Twitterverse Reacted To Facebook App …

Facebook back in service after second outage.

“We are currently restoring Facebook services that people had trouble accessing earlier today due to a configuration,” Facebook spokesman Jay Nancarrow said.

That a status update could protect against those things makes no sense, of course — but it vindicates and comforts whatever vague anxieties we feel. Whatever the underlying fears that perpetuate this now routine prank, Facebook responded to this latest one with, of course, a status update: “While there may be water on Mars, don’t believe everything you read on the internet today.
