A Bangor mother has detailed her harrowing experience following this afternoon’s Facebook outage. 

35 year old Anita Tention found herself unable to access the site for a mind bending four hours today when the social media giant’s servers mysteriously shat the bed.

“I was just about to leave a judgey comment on a Belfast Live article when suddenly the app stopped working”, recalled the distraught mother-of-three.

Believing it to be a simple WiFi issue Miss Tention told us she ran down the street holding her iPhone in the air to see if she could pick up a neighbour’s WiFi signal, but to no avail.

“I just did what any rational thinking person would do in that situation and rang the peelers”, she explained.

When emergency services arrived on the scene they found Miss Tention begging to know ‘all the biz’ she’d missed out on while Facebook was down.

The 35-yr-old was wrapped in a blanket and whisked away to a nearby community centre where other victims of the Facebook crash were given shelter.

Volunteers held up photographs of various things including cooked meals and encouraged the victims to give them a thumbs up if they approved.

Medical staff also retaught the victims how to communicate verbally after they’d spent the past ten years conversing exclusively in GIFs and emojis.

Eventually Facebook’s fixed the issue though, sparking emotional scenes in the community centre.

“I’m just relieved the nightmare is finally over!”, she wept whilst repeatedly refreshing the app.

“But my thoughts and prayers go out to those who were stuck in work and actually had to do their jobs instead of creeping on Bakebook”.
