According to some sources, Facebook was down today for about an hour and a half. A lot of people use this popular app, but if it went offline for an extended length of time, or went away permanently, would you care?

Ron Paul Facebook Student Network Tops 20,000
Mainstream media has labeled Ron Paul (R-Tex) as the “Internet candidate” for his online success, especially with 700-plus MeetUp groups. Less well reported is how well Ron Paul is doing with college students around the nation. The campaign is said to have over 100 Facebook.com student groups and likely 20,000-plus students participating nationally - a figure that trounces all other candidates with the exception of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
"Obama has been building a Facebook presence forever," said one source close to the Ron Paul campaign. "But the Ron Paul effort took everybody by surprise. It was purely spontaneous." In fact, student sentiment is seemingly hard to predict. The largest campaign-oriented, national Facebook network of all is not a "pro" forum at all, but is said to be an "anti-Hillary" group. Facebook is a 'Net-based MeetUp-like facility, but one that is well-known for penetrating a college-age audience. The 'Net facility has also attracted some controversy, as FMNN has reported, for its putative links to US intelligence agencies.
