An uncommon occurrence when facebook becomes unbearably slow or unavailable, which some comedians claim increases productivity in offices but in reality only results in frustration, impatience, and the f5 key gathering more fingerprints in a day than it normally does all month.

A time where hundreds of unused twitter and random forum accounts are reopened for a few minutes simply to complain about the facebook before the user returns to the f5 key.

A time where hundreds of people(?) worry about what will happen to their crops on farmville.

A time which, if extended to great lengths, could possibly lead to a social networking state of emergency.
There was a major facebook downtime today, we thought about using the time to do something productive at work but ended up on googling stuff and spamming twitter instead.
