business news in context, analysis with attitude

The BBC reports that Facebook went down globally yesterday for about 40 minutes - in the middle of the night for the US, but the middle of the day elsewhere in the world.

The company downplayed reports that hackers might have brought Facebook, as well as Instagram, to its knees, albeit temporarily.

"Earlier this evening many people had trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram," a spokeswoman told the BBC. "This was not the result of a third-party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems. We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100% for everyone."
KC's View:
It was a week of trauma-inducing events. A massive blizzard. An asteroid that comes perilously close to the Earth. And then Facebook goes down.

Which of those do you think caused the most anxiety?

I know what my nominee would be. After all, if I can't post, do I even exist?
