Facebook is back up, world's productivity is back down

Great news for Twitter

Update: It's back up folks! (For some people at least) Panic over, go back to your day jobs.

Original story

Struggling to get onto Facebook at the moment? Well don't panic too much, as the social networking site is down for everyone.

Zuck and co. are staying quiet on the reasoning behind the outage, with a simple message of "Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can" greeting you if you navigate to the homepage.

Needless to say this is probably the beginning of the end for humanity as we know it. So gather your family, head to the storm shelter and pray, just pray, that Mark can save us.

Help us Mark, you're our only hope.

More blips!

If you're in desperate need of nuggets of information now Facebook is unavailable fear not, for we have many wonderful blips to tide you over.

John (Twitter, Google+) got his first phone aged 12 and since then he's been fixated on all things mobile, churning his way through a multitude of handsets, tablets and operating systems. Signalling his arrival at TechRadar by becoming a Guinness World Record holder in his first week (for the highest score on Super Mario Bros using a giant controller), John hasn't looked back since.
