Social Media Broken…

Discussion in 'Lounge' started by bradders, Oct 4, 2021.

  1. All FB owned sites down for hours. An inside hack job or cynical downtime by FB overlord to show how much people need it to deflect their atrocious behaviour towards privacy, data mining, profiling and creation of ‘a modern tobacco dependency’ on younger generations?

  2. Yup, you do start to wonder don’t you Paul?
  3. No
  4. Indeed.
    Wouldn’t it be funny if Overlord said ‘sod it, I have enough to live forever in absolute luxury for generations to come, let’s shut down the servers and destroy all data…
    And wouldn’t the world be a better place for many!

    Edit: how can auto spell take ‘sod’ and turn it into ‘aLt’??!!!

  7. I couldn't load this forum for a while yesterday. No notice about 'undergoing maintenance'. But apparently Virgin was down too (though nothing like as long).

  8. Generational Sign of the times...my daughter in law was genuinely absolutely distraught that facebook had gone down - i couldn't give a flying [email protected] ,i'm not on it or any of the other platforms, and if i didn't need my mobile phone i wouldn't have one of those either.:D..Dinosaur.

  10. DNS issues wasn't it? I find it hard that such a large tech company took an age to resolve, at first I suspected a hack given it was all Zuckerberg's platforms, they'd have resilience globally in triplicate so for me it pointed towards that, then I started thinking I'd seen a similar issue in a previous role for a global bank... bingo!

    Knocked $52bn off their stock value though!

  12. The same generation doing this all day, whatever happened to the art of conversation.

  13. I don’t really do social media these days so my bag of care is pretty empty

    pretty epic cock up though :cool:
  14. All part of the plan .
  15. What's best about the Register is headlines like:

    "We have some sad news about Facebook. It's coming back after six hours offline"

  16. There's something very, very wrong when you see at least half the kids at school kicking out time walking along staring into their devices.
