Images of Britain's breakfasts failed to make their way onto the internet this morning after Facebook collapsed, sending the interwebs into social media withdrawal.
Anyone visiting Zuck's site was shown the following message:
Distraught Facebookers resorted to social media methadone - or Twitter, as it's otherwise known - to make sure the world knew about their anger.
Some twits suggested the problem was due to an Anonymous DDoS attack, although this cannot be confirmed.
Here's what Twitter is saying about the shutdown:
#FacebookDown facebook is down we are investigating the reason it might be a DDoS by Anonymous as last time they launched the largest DDoS— ArabCrunch (@ArabCrunch) June 19, 2014
