Facebook’s mobile and desktop website temporarily went down last night and the Internet went crazy. This is the second outage for the company in less than a week.
Facebook users were greeted with the message “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on it and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can.” The crash lasted between 10 and 45 minutes, though everything is fine now.
B&T contacted Facebook Australia for comment on this story.
The hashtag #facebookdown is still trending on Twitter because people can’t live in a world without Facebook. Here are some of B&T‘s favourite responses:

Facebook goes down three times in one month, that’s three more times than any of my exes did in one year. #Facebookdown
