Facebook doesn’t go down all that often, but when it does it’s big news. The social network reportedly experienced an outage at approximately 1 a.m. PST that affected users all over the world.

Users in countries including Australia, New Zealand, England, South Korea, India, were unable to access Facebook, instead seeing an error message saying "Sorry, something went wrong". The outage lasted about half an hour.

“Earlier today, we experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time,” Facebook’s APAC spokesperson Charlene Chian said.”We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100%. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

No reason for the outage has yet been given.

And if they did,...it didn't hurt.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
