Technology: The Disappearing Act

Apparently, while I was away, Facebook had a bit of a wobble...


Now, as you may or may not know, I do not have an account with Facebook. In the eyes of many, this probably means I do not exist. Which is all fine with me, frankly. I can surely do without knowing when people eat, fart, sleep (and who with). If I ever want to know I'll ask. But, for the 500 million (and counting) Facebook junkies, the wobble must have felt Earth shattering (I almost said "as if the Earth moved", but that's, emphatically, NOT what I meant). Or did it? Surely people are still able to fall back on the more old-fashioned way of talking to each other?

E-mail, anyone? Or even - shock, horror! - phone...
