Unable to use the social network, many netizens have posted in other ironical social networks comments on the fall of Facebook and have not been slow to create memes about the incident on the web. Sarcastically, many of them come to say no much to do when Facebook falls.
Last October several sites such as Twitter, Amazon, CNN, Reddit, PayPal, Spotify, AirBnB, and Netflix, among others, were no longer available as a result of three Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Against Dyn, a leading provider of DNS (Domain Name System) services.
However, this incident affected about more than 1 billion users worldwide but hold on, its effect was initially limited to those who are on the east coast of the United States.
