We survived the Facebook Apocalypse

Picture it. February 3, 2004. Don’t remember the significance of that date? That was the day before TheFacebook launched and today we got a little taste of what life was like almost 18 years ago.

Well, not really. So many of us are addicted to Facebook that we literally lost our minds when we couldn’t use it for the majority of the workday in the U.S.

You know those folks who have been saying for years to make sure you don’t keep all of your social media eggs in one basket?

But seriously y’all, how many small businesses experienced a heart stopping disruption in their operations today by not havbig access to Facebook’s tool?

Now imagine if the same thing had happened to Google… Actually, I don’t have to imagine, I just have to remember that Google also experienced service interruptions in the past two years of the Panini.

Were you ready for the disruption? Are you motivated to make a preparedness plan now?

We might all do well to conduct an audit of our content and vital information and make sure we won’t lose our means to live and do commerce with the takedown of one entity.
