You must be one of “the Chosen Ones.” That’s savage.

Check twitter for updates.



Can you imagine the PANIC if Twitter goes down, too.



Even better ... Can you imagine people running through the streets habitually expressing that panic in 140 characters or less?

One major issue we, the modern human race, face here is that most all the newly created good independent music that comes out uses Youtube as it's primary jumping point for dissemination.

We could stand to lose a lot of great music if we lose Youtube. I realize a lot of this stuff is on other sites like Bandcamp but it's so much harder to find what you're looking for on those websites. Youtube makes decent suggestions to related things and the comments section often fills with posters suggesting related artists which makes for good leads on expanding your listening library.

That would be awesome, as a never social media user I'd love to see all the zombies erupt in panic.

Kickstart the apocalypse.

This is just great, now where the hell am I supposed to watch funny cat videos and kids eating tide pods?!? Hmm, the neighbors have kids, AND a cat....I may be on to something here.


I’ve got some pods that I don’t use. Maybe we can put a sticky note on the packaging saying eat me. Put that on the porch and sit and wait. I’ll bring some beer or wine, or both F# it.

Yeah I just dont know who has the firepower to bring down YouTube worldwide

It could be an internal security issue. I would actually be surprised if there werent groups of people trying to sabotage Google.

Seriously, youtube has been the most useful social/video website to me... It could be THE free education everybody wants... Why couldn’t they have taken Facebook?

It’s just a massive Mandela effect upgrade. They’ve got to tweak a few adjectives around the internet to keep people buzzing about things that aren’t.

Oh, and a reminder - this is not a police related matter.
Stop calling 911 please!

Mine will occasionally load the video thumbnails and show you even the preview when you mouse over them, but I just get video errors when I actually try to go in and watch a video. The rest of the time, YouTube loads as blank.

Hackers most likely


YouTube says they're working on it.
www.digitaltrends.com...

I didn't know so many people depend on the service. You enter YouTube in Google search right now, and it hundreds of pages with people complaining about the outage.

Im still gonna go with something breaking vs an Infosec issue.
See the majority of outages recently, for example Webex over the past 30 days that were a cascading failure of many things.
99% of the time that causes drama.
