Facebook down – End of the world?


Saw a tweet by Jeff Bullas (@jeffbullas) and it tickled me. Facebook has become part of (mostly) everybody’s life. It has the same feeling when mobile phones were introduced to the world (and became affordable) – nobody can live without it. So, is it the end of the world when Facebook is down? Social media to hit a snag? What do you do? Start washing your car? Rearrange your desktop? Again, what can you do?

20 THINGS TO DO WHEN FACEBOOK IS DOWN

Jeff says:

  1. Get on to Twitter and send tweets telling everyone that Facebook is down (along with millions of other people tweeting that Facebook has crashed) creating a social media apocalypse that crashes Twitter
  2. Clean your desk ..again
  3. Buy Google shares
  4. Ring your friends and actually have a conversation with awkward silence
  5. As you can’t fix the fence on Farmville, go and wash your real car
  6. Send an SMS to your friends announcing to them what they already know.. Facebook is down
  7. Read your children a story
  8. Do your tax return
  9. Write that proposal for your client that you have been meaning to do for days
  10. Send another Tweet that Facebook is “still” down
  11. Write a blog post about Facebook being down and the implications for society and our reliance on social media
  12. Start using Instant Messenger again
  13. Start planning to create a Facebook competitor
  14. Get out your 100 point bucket list and discover that there is not one digital goal you want to achieve before you die on the list
  15. Start a family
  16. Call your girlfriend and suggest that you have a bit of fun!!
