The world goes into panic as Facebook goes down for hours
The massively popular social network started having problems at around noon Eastern time on March 13, 2019, with issues popping up across Facebook proper, Facebook Messenger and Instagram around the world.
The service outage was one of the longest Facebook has ever experienced.
It is not immediately clear what caused Wednesday's issue. Some users reported seeing a message saying the site was down for "required maintenance," while others were able to get the social networks to briefly load before discovering that functionality was limited.
Facebook also confirmed that the outage was not the result of any distributed denial of service, or DDoS attack.
The world was literally scrambling around like mice! This outage puts into perspective that amount of control Facebook has over everyone.. including those of us at The Sean Jackson Show
