Reminder: Facebook Going Down Is Not A Good Reason To Call the Police

| Wed Sep. 3, 2014 4:13 PM EDT

Facebook suffered a brief outage today. When these kinds of things happen—and these kinds of things tend to happen—the key is to not lose your head. Don't panic. Stretch your legs. Go for a walk. Check out Twitter. Check out Tumblr. Check out the real world. Whatever you do, don't call the police.

Just remember: You're going to get through this.
