The outage left people concerned and confused: "For a second I thought to myself 'I wonder if cats still exist?'. I didn't know if it was just my wifi so I immediately took to Twitter to see what was happening. The hashtag #FacebookFail told me all I needed to know".
The UK Government has set up a helpline for those who feel emotionally distressed after this incident. A spokesman said: "We've set up this line but we are getting no calls because it seems people have completely forgotten how to use the phone. We are now in the process of setting up a Snapchat account so that people can send us a picture of their distressed face. A trained psychiatrist will view all the pictures and arrange an intervention if they are deemed to be at serious risk of going back to MySpace".
