As I write this, Facebook has been down for most of the day due to a monumental DNS foulup. This isn't the post where I gloat about not being on Facebook so this doesn't impact me in the slightest. Instead it's the post where I say, "I told you so" about integrating Facebook into absolutely every crevice of your life that you can find, as well every crevice of every device you've bought for the last decade.

I'm sure that the problem will eventually get fixed and nobody will have learned any lesson from the experience, but for a brief shining moment there was record productivity across the world and people having meals with other people talked to each other and are just now noticing what their partner actually looks like.
