When Facebook went down on Friday, people did this

Facebook went down for about 19 minutes on Friday, and you'd expect people to be annoyed. But you wouldn't expect them to panic like this.

Apparently, when Facebook went down, people started calling 911 to ask the cops for help.

The police department in La Crescenta, California even went on Twitter and wrote, quote, "Facebook is not a law enforcement issue, please don't call us about it being down, we don't know when [it] will be back up."

Meanwhile, TheWire.com tried to estimate how much money Facebook lost by missing out on those 19 minutes of ad revenue.

Based on their average revenue from last quarter, Facebook makes about $22,543 per minute . . . so going down for 19 minutes cost them approximately $426,607.
