It was panic stations at a local Betoota Heights residence this morning after the global social media outage hit our humble corner of Queensland.
With many left shocked and confused by various social media platforms disappearing from their Tuesday morning scroll, it created a crisis for a local concreter named Toby White.
“Obviously Facebook not refreshing was a problem, but no Instagram was a disaster,” said the local man dangerously short on softcore pornography during breaky and smoko.
His comments come as the social media giant went down for roughly 6 hours, with the company yet to divulge what caused the technical failure.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg posted an apology on his personal page, saying; “Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger are coming back online now. Sorry for the disruption today — I know how much you rely on our services to stay connected with the people you care about.”
That was a message that certainly rang true for local concreter White.
“It was stressful aye,” he laughed.
“I had to run home and try and find some of my special vintage Zoo mags in the garage for the site.”
“Everyone was pretty rattled,” he continued, referencing the lack of content available from lifestyle gurus and influencers.
“Was pretty funny, some of the young boys were just saying we should get on the TikTok, where you get video versions of that kind of stuff.”
“But they were pretty blown away by some of the stuff in the mag though aye.”
“Good to connect with the younger generations, but I’m certainly glad to have digital softcore pornography back in my news feed.”
