Funniest responses to the Facebook and Instagram outage
Australia woke up on Tuesday to Facebook and Instagram experiencing a global outage. (What's App got hit too, which FB also owns).
Some say the issues are interesting timing given a whistleblower just brought to light damning allegations about the company. Hmmm...
But let's not get too serious... instead, we're looking at the funniest responses to the outage. Which of course is mostly on Twitter because that's all that remained... at least for a few glorious hours.
Facebook reaches out to users... on Twitter lol

The irony of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram having to post on Twitter that their server is down. Hilarious, isn't it? 😂#facebookdown #instagramdown #WhatsApp #Twitter #Instagram #Facebook #WhatsAppDown #serverdown— Akash Munirathinam (@akash_rathinam) October 4, 2021
Twitter is king for a few hours
And when Twitter said hi to the world, some big brands had a lot of fun saying hi back

Of course, who couldn't resist using the global phenomenon that is Netflix's Squid Game for some witty commentary:

But not everyone was sad
Can we all agree to use this Instagram/Facebook outage to unplug and enjoy the break? No? OK cool. 🤳📵#facebookdown #instagramdown #whatsappdown #internetshutdown #gumball #tawog #AmazingWorldofGumball #CartoonNetwork pic.twitter.com/YTPNncRl54— Cartoon Network (@cartoonnetwork) October 4, 2021
