Conspiracy theory time. Yesterday Facebook suffered its biggest outage in its entire history. Other affiliated services like Instagram and WhatsApp were also affected. Facebook is also under a federal criminal investigation over its data sharing practices. Do you think the outage had anything to do with law enforcement seizing some of the company’s servers?

“We are cooperating with investigators and take those probes seriously,” a Facebook spokesman said in a statement. “We’ve provided public testimony, answered questions and pledged that we will continue to do so.”

    It is a huge and complicated system, I am surprised that it is up and running most of the time.

    Click like and share if you agree. Only 1% will, 99% won’t. 😀

    Let’s get really paranoid. Did the servers go down because Facebook was purging data in an effort to cover up what they did and broke something
