Facebook and Instagram Go Down While Twitter Explodes

Jan 27, 2015

Social-networking site Facebook went down briefly Tuesday, along with its subsidiary Instagram.

The company issued a statement saying, “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on it and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can,” according to Reuters.

Users across the U.S., Europe, Asia and Australia said they were unable to access either site for upwards of 30 minutes.

Several took to social-media rival Twitter to voice their frustrations.

Rotten Tomatoes took advantage of the moment to make a punning comparison to a cheap Colin Farrell movie.

Fellow sharing website 9gag memed up the whole experience.

And naturally, the MySpace jokes were aplenty.
