Facebook crashed worldwide and everyone is going crazy. The question on everybody’s minds: what are we going to do now? Though the cause of the crash is still unknown (stay tuned!), it is quite entertaining to watch things unfold on Twitter and other social media sites.
We’re going through the #Facebook thread on Twitter and found some pretty hilarious tweets. Check them out:

A Facebook spokesperson sent a statment to The Guardian saying: "Earlier this morning, we experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100%. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused."
