Facebook Is Down Twitter Is Up

Hilarious to read the live stream of Twitterer's.  Apparently, Facebook is down a day after Time magazine knighted Mark Zuckerberg as Time's Person of the Year.  Oh, snap - but the white screen for the downage has been attributed to the rollout of new brand pages according to social media site, Mashable.

Ironically I had to snap up two posts from the Twitter stream from Forbes and Smosh.  Thought it said Forbes is down but darn eyes just playing tricks on me.

ForbesFacebook is down. We'll ask them why.

smosh: Really Zuckerberg? TIME names you name of the year, and you reward us with Facebook going down?

Life in these times is good.  This is from the last downage in September on

In addition, according to website Good, Mark Zuckerberg announced that he would join the like of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates to pledging to give at least 50% of their wealth away by the age of 65.  This announcement preceded his title of Time's Man of the Year.  The Giving Pledge is an honorable attempt of profit sharing from the wealthiest Americans by those signing up to give a majority of their wealth to philanthropy.
