Too Long; Didn't Read

This Slogging thread occurred in hackernoon's official #random channel, and has been edited for readability. Facebook and Instagram are down today, but Facebook's PR firm says this is unrelated to the global outage experienced on 4 October 2021. The pod is titled "HackerNoon shuts down Zucc empire with one article" and "If anything zuck sues us see you in court :savage-joy:  I’d say we’ve made it as a pod if we get even close to FB legals was coming here to post something along those lines.

Twitter is trolling

DavidOct 4, 2021, 7:21 PM

And somehow it's stock is down more than Facebooks...

Maybe large outages just create a lack of faith in all tech companies? like whatever the opposite of a rising tide lifts all boats is...

Hmm though they claim it's unrelated 🤔 "Clarification: This is completely unrelated to the global Facebook outage experienced on 4 October 2021."

Had to call my service provider today, they legit have it programmed into their phone msgs and online chat, that it's not them, it's the companies.

Wait, hold on, so what exactly is happening here? I is Fb under attack?

EllenOct 4, 2021, 9:08 PM

Ellen If you are looking for a serious answer, facebook, ig, messager, whatsapp (basically the whole mark zucc empire) is under a “global outage” right after the accusation of “constantly prioritizing profits”. it happens once in a while. i guess some dev just tryna introduce new code and the code has bugs :savage-joy:

But on the less serious note, yes, we did that. or twitter did that so people come to use them more

EllenOct 4, 2021, 9:15 PM

Well, I'm starting to realize what the topic of the pod will be. "HackerNoon shuts down Zucc empire with one article"

DavidOct 4, 2021, 9:16 PM
HangOct 4, 2021, 9:16 PM

Ellen ok and if anything zuck sues us see you in court :savage-joy:

LinhOct 4, 2021, 9:17 PM

I’d say we’ve made it as a pod if we get even close to FB legals
