We could be talking about the revelations from the whistleblower interview... but here we are talking about the outage. Isn't that weird?

Some very quick & dirty numbers:

Facebook revenue for 2020 is ~$86 billion; which breaks down to a tad under $10 million in revenue per hour. So the outage cost them roughly $50 million in lost revenue.

Methinks someone is doing a quick spitshine on their resume whether they want to or not.

9-10am, noon-1pm, 6-8pm. Otherwise it's dark.

All of social media.
