Yesterday’s Facebook outage was interesting.
It was the longest worldwide outage in its history, and people were losing their minds.
I got a number of texts from friends asking if my Facebook was down, and apparently Twitter was rocking with everyone going over there because they couldn’t spend eight hours with no social media whatsoever.
(They couldn’t get their fix from Instagram since it was down too)
Personally, I found it liberating not worrying about checking Facebook most of the day, and I caught up on some work that needed to be done and then took a nice walk to the park, without my eyes being glued to the screen.
As Ian Carlos Campbell from “The Verge” wrote yesterday:
“As hellish as I imagine fixing this issue is for the engineers at Facebook and anyone who relies on the company’s products for work, there is something undeniably delightful about spending a few hours without some of the biggest social networks in the world. It’s almost peaceful”
One frustrating thing from the outage is I was supposed to do a Facebook Live with Timon Vinke inside The Coaching Jungle group to talk about how to set up a successful mastermind.
But the good news is we’ve rescheduled that chat for 2 pm EST today, so if you aren’t already a Jungle member you can join to watch us by going here:
