People, people… try to remain calm. Stop reloading that web page while peeking over your shoulder to make sure your boss isn’t watching. Stop closing that iPhone or Android app and reopening it endlessly, hoping to see fresh updates pop up on your screen. It’s not just you… Facebook is down.

The company hasn’t said anything at this point, but the outage began around 2:00 p.m. EDT and if history has taught us anything, the site should be back up any minute. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of cat videos and baby pictures for your browsing enjoyment once it comes back up.

Sit tight — we’re in this together.

UPDATE: It’s back. We made it. Give the person next to you a hug and share your survivor stories on BGR’s Facebook page.
