Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp had an unprecedented outage yesterday, leaving the entire social media world shaken to the core. Millions of people worldwide had to go back to basics and relearn simple skills that had once been considered normal.
WE HAD TO TALK TO PEOPLE.
STALKING BECAME MORE….MANUAL.
PEOPLE HAD TO SIT AND WAIT FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORT WITH NOTHING.
WAITING ROOMS BECAME PURE TORTURE.
NOBODY KNEW WHAT WE ATE FOR LUNCH.
WE HAD TO TAKE PHOTOS KNOWING NOBODY WOULD SEE THEM.
AND BLOCKING DICKHEADS BECAME MUCH MORE TRICKY
By the end of the day we were all over it. But think of the younger generation! Whilst we gave our historical skills a bit of a flex, they were quite literally lost for an entire day.
People had to make phone calls to chat to friends and family, make social plans via text and tell people what they ate for breakfast instead of sharing it on Instagram. So many latte arts wasted….
MAY IT NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.
