Hello and Greetings my Bearded Soldiers, it’s me your Bearded leader, The Bearded Captain, leader and flag bearer of all Beards on digital and digital broadcasting media. I am that Beard who tries to make people laugh and I am that Beard who tries to make people smile.
My Bearded Brethren’s, I pray you’re well, looking after yourselves and your Beards! Brothers, we need to talk. It’s about what happened on 4th October 2021. Now on the face of it, this is a normal day at the office, but this day would be like no other.
Facebook, which is seen as the biggest social network site on the planet, crashed! O the cheek of it. To rub further salt in the wounds, it didn’t just stop there. WhatsApp and Instagram which is Facebook owned crashed too!
So for six straight hours, phones were turned on and off, the apps were installed and removed. Is this the end of time they all wondered? DFS haven’t advertised any sales and now no Facebook, Insta or Whattsapp?
Maybe UFO’s and the Illuminati is real! How can Facebook, what many people treat as life, just go down! Mr Zuckerberg, some say it’s Karma for the funny meme accounts you ban for 30 days. When ‘social media’, went down people actually had to be social!
Unbelievable right? The cheek of it, they actually had to speak to family members in person and not spend hours on end speaking to that ‘stunning brunette’, that’s Bob from Lincoln who has a beer belly and three teeth in all reality.
Families were sitting together and people were not on their phones. It was like the 1960’s. Covid, Bubonic Plague were bad but some would have you believe the outage of FB 2021 was worse, but those heroes survived it.
For those who love to show off their rented super cars or that their on holiday, had to just actually enjoy the holiday with out telling every man and his dog. This next example due to the social media outage 2021, really took the cake.
People went to restaurants without posting their food to show people who couldn’t care less. People just ate their food, quietly. In normal times, people would send a cheeky voice note on WhatsApp, but now (if they had iPhone) it was Imessage.
It was getting quite tense, people were sending text messages to each other, thought it was going to be carrier Pidgeon and Morse code next. Thankfully (for some of you) this didn’t happen. Social media came back, our lives over reliant on the not real restored to full flow.
Let’s see if this taught us anything, but I will not be holding my breath
It’s over and out from The Bearded Captain.
