Facebook went down early this afternoon — not for very long — but long enough for mass panic to ensue. Not only did some users call the police, but NBC deemed the event worthy of a breaking news report.

Los Angeles’ Sgt. Brink seemed pretty unhappy about getting 911 calls because Facebook was inaccessible.
#Facebook is not a Law Enforcement issue, please don’t call us about it being down, we don’t know when FB will be back up!

The Daily Caller is happy to report that Facebook is in fact up and running again. Feel free to return to scrolling through your ex-boyfriend’s photos and liking your crush’s statuses.
