Facebook Goes Down, Gallows Humor Ensues on Twitter – Updated | Epicenter | Wired.com

Sign of the times – see the link below for some related tweet samples

Facebook went down Thursday, impeding access to the web site from browsers as well as third-party apps.

“We’re currently experiencing some site issues causing Facebook to be slow or unavailable for some users,” a spokeswoman told Wired.com in an e-mail. “We are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.”

The outage was met with considerable amusement on Twitter, with many saying this was a great time to catch up on other things, or that the world was coming to an end, or that the world would finally get back on track with all the extra time we now have. “With Facebook down, you’d think productivity would increase. Nope. Everyone’s on Twitter bitching about it,” said @brandonzeman.

My favorite:
