Finding out the Facebook apps were down – three times

Just past six this evening, my daughter Luisa called wondering if there was something wrong with her phone: she couldn't access Facebook, WhatsApp, or Instagram. Only when she asked did I remember I hadn't been able to access Facebook an hour or so earlier. I checked on Twitter and found all sorts of dry humor about the Facebook apps having crashed (with the best one being one I just discovered now, a few hours later: Twitter itself tweeted, "Hello literally everybody"). But I forgot about it until Andrea said her phone wasn't connected to our WiFi; only when she mentioned it was a WhatsApp problem did I think of the crash.
