login page is back up.
I can't log in though, because I don't have an account.
The only reason i have one now is because i have a oculus rift S VR set. At first i did not need a FB account for that in order to use it. I was planning on playing Lone Echo in VR tonight. That is how i found out it was all down.
I was already planning on selling the RIft S for a Decagear VR set but that got postponed for release so im stuck with FB for this right now.
EDIT: The Oculus site is working again now. Repairing the install. Not sure if it will actually work tho.
scary to think how damn trapped oculus left us when they sold to facebook.

Facebook.com Is for Sale as Worldwide Outage, Whistleblower, and Massive User Data Breach Collide in Perfect Storm
Is this true ?
Facebook is down, and not in a minor way. The Big Tech mammoth is down worldwide in a way in which they will not be able to easily recover as the DNS A and AAA records have been deleted. Technically speaking, facebook.com is now for sale.
They’re not alone. Instagram, WhatsApp, and others have also been affected in the same way. It’s clearly a coordinated attack on a massive scale, though it’s unclear how it was pulled off. We’re not talking about a simple DDoS attack. This is catastrophic and would have required high-level access to certain protocols that one cannot get from the outside.

The timing of the widespread outages comes as a Facebook whistleblower will be testifying before Congress on Tuesday.The whistleblower appeared on “60 Minutes” Sunday, detailing the tech company’s mission to put profit before doing “what was good for the public,” including clamping down on hate speech. Shares of the tech company slid 6% by early afternoon, tumbling not just on the whistleblower but also the global outage.
Wishful thinking or just a ludicrous online lie?
