Facebook Incurrs Two Outages In One Week

Social network empire Facebook has incurred two major outages within the last week. The first of these happened last Thursday with a second one happening yesterday. Some analysts were suspecting a malicious attack, but Facebook has stated it was related to problems with their Graph API. Regardless of the cause, Facebook saw a sharp drop in stock price during and following both outages. Oh and one more thing… the world did not stop turning during the outages. Whew!
