Whatever will I do with myself: FACEBOOK DOWN

Debby

It's the end of the world! This morning I couldn't respond to posts. Then it let me. Then it stopped right away. Can't upload a picture. Tonight I can't get into my account at all. Is this what life was like before Facebook? I'm not sure I like it...................

I was wondering why it wasn't loading right. I thought it was my laptop.

It seems to be hit and miss. I can get into one account, but not the other. My main one let me post a couple things a little while ago, then nothing. Now I can't even get into it. I so sad......... I may have to talk to that guy who lives on my couch. He claims to be married to me.

Me too Debby---- my "real" account is down but my secondary one is accessible......though when I tried to post something I couldn't . I was thinking maybe I really should just call it quits. (but I won't because I am too addicted).

According to a news item on BBC.com, it's happening to a lot of people. They can't access it for some reason.

I ran into this, too. Someone messaged me and then I couldn’t get on to respond. I really spend too much time on FB

I wanted to post pictures of Penny at the dog park today on FB but they won’t load. She had such a good time! A year ago she was newly adopted and had heartworm. All cured now!

I am glad I am not the only one. I needed to send several people messages. Some went through, I hope. Starting I think it was early last week when I sent a message it started to appear if I had received a new message. Easy enough to click closed but irritating as without checking with the recipient or receiving a reply there is no way to know if the message went through.

I couldn't access FB all day today, but it seems to be working just fine right now. Hope it lasts! I thought it was something wrong with either my PC or my Internet service.

So happy not to have to worry about this. I don't want more on my plate.

I think it's a wonderful thing every time these social media apps fail and people are forced to communicate the "old fashioned way" through individual texts, phone calls, emails or in person.

I truly dispise social media. It has taken away so much personal interaction.


I can understand how it might be helpful for family members/friends located far away from each other as it allows a way to stay connected.

So many use it as a substitute for normal interaction though.

We don't get together and tell each other about our day/week, we've been live streaming it the whole time!

So what exactly are we supposed to do when we see each other in person Becky??

I could get on but if tried to share something, I got the message it could not happen . Try again. Now it's working.

I didn't have any issues. There doesn't seem to be much of anything going on with FB these days. A few people sharing some funny memes and that's about it.

LOL I read an article that Zuckerberg is going to change Facebook so people

can have small intimate groups with just the group of friends that they want/ask to join.

You know....like those things we used to call "forums". Wow...he is a smart one

to come up with something like that. ;)

Texas gem, THIS IS SOCIAL MEDIA. It's a message board. Same as Facebook. Same as Instagram. Same as Whatsapp (the 3 social media sites that had the same problem yesterday). Just a different form of it.

Surprised Texasgem did not realize that this is social media but many people do not seem to.


Uptown Gal you can already do that on fb. Create a group and add only the people you want to talk to in it. It gets tricky when you try to share things like photos finding the right setting for the group that allows the same photo to be seen by another group. I set one up so that people could ask hard questions when my husband was in the nursing home. No one ever asked the hard questions but anyone can do the same.

I'm only on facebook because my siblings and my uncle and I have a private group for passing information along about my mom. The last few days though it kept telling me that I had a private message when in fact there was nothing there. I didn't realize that was a problem but just thought it was my computer acting up.

Hmmm. I wonder what Zuckerberg meant the changes would be. I don't

do Facebook...except to keep up with a cousin. I'm not sure how hers is set

up though...I see relatives and her friends coming and going. I do know that

you can make it private, but no expert on it at all.

Not too interested in helping someone become the richest guy in the world in half a generation ...

... by selling the private information of millions of people that he can entice to click on his stuff.

I use Facebook, but more and more it's all memes and politics.

I do love my cast iron cooking group on it though.

I'm also glad I use FB Purity, which blocks all ads and other nonsense on FB.
