Oh yes, #facebookdown is the hot trending topic for Twitter users worldwide at the moment. Facebook and Instagram suddenly went down and users quickly took to Twitter to voice their funny opinions about how some people can no longer seem to get on with their lives without the social media giant.

Here are a few of the funniest tweets we saw with the #facebookdown tag.

There have been pokes about Twitter only getting some attention because Facebook is down, or how some old social media services like Friendster and MySpace had new sign ups during the downtime. The fun and humor about all this is that there is life outside of Facebook so even if it goes down for a while, some people can’t seem to take it. These tweets poke fun at those kinds of?situations and it?s all good fun. On a bit of a serious note, it seems Lizard Squad is taking credit for Facebook and Instagram going down. How true that is though, we are not yet sure.

Facebook should be back up now and the downtime lasted around less than an hour. Did your world crumble with #facebookdown? Let us know in the comments below.
