Facebook is down! Facebook is down! Must update status. Must tell the world.

Wait a minute. I can't update my status because, duh, Facebook is DOWN! Must employ emergency measures ...

Step one: Grab your valuables. 

Step two: Get in the car. 

Step three: Run for cover.

Actually ... all I need to do is log in to Twitter!

Mashable has it confirmed. The social networking giant Facebook is (or at least was at the time of this posting) officially down. So what's the public's first reaction? Head to Twitter, of course.
