So the productivity went up for less than an hour today when the Facebook 2014 crash happened. As usual, the social media amplification effect took place. Within a few minutes, news that Facebook was down was all over the place – well, except on Facebook.
Some reactions were just plain boring, while some were actually funny. And of course, cats.

And cannibal gangs…
Cannibal gangs of raving Facebook apocalypse survivors are already roaming Twitter, hopelessly. #facebookdown https://t.co/wzdJ9frXKl

Naturally, people didn’t pass up on the chance to poke fun at Facebook.

Dear Facebook people. Here on Twitter, we do not care that Facebook is down. Remember what Zuckerberg called you for giving him your data.

Facebook was not the only one who got a bit of the funnies…
I'm on Google Minus if anyone is interested. #FacebookDown

Here’s a good one from KitKat Philippines. Whoever was on duty and caught this early should get a cookie.
Looks like #Facebook is having a BREAK right now. Have a BREAK, too! 🙂 #facebookdown pic.twitter.com/rBhH4CMqKS
