image for Facebook goes down for half hour, productivity increases worldwide a thousand fold
This copy of the internet is broken

Earlier today, approximately 13:00 GMT, the social networking site, Facebook, the thing that people like to do instead of working when they are at work, had a minor issue with one of its servers, which caused an inability for people to log on for approximately half an hour.

The world immediately went into a panic, stock markets fell, lemmings rushed headlong for cliff edges and scores of desk bound office workers had nothing to do, but work.

After the initial dip in world trading, productivity picked back up to its normal pace and then increased. Before long, colleagues who had worked in the same office for years and never spoken were talking to each other, face to face.

Rather than poking each other or sending non work related messages about "how shit faced they were last Friday, LOL" and "that bitch in accounts really pees me off, ROFL", they were discussing work issues, problems were being solved, goals were being reached, targets hit.

In one country, productivity increased to such an extent that they had cleared their national debt before anyone knew what was happening.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
