How the hell am I supposed to call my kids for dinner if #Facebook is down? Do they still do telegrams?

Facebook, its social plugins, apps and chat all were down during the period.

The Company has not yet spoken over the outage, however this outage can cost about £300,000 ($500,000) to Facebook, as the company is expected to be making £8,800 ($15,000) in revenue every 60 seconds.

Facebook looks to be working fine now. but a 30 minutes outage for social media giant is surely a big issue.

Update: A Facebook spokesperson told The Guardian that “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,”.
