(WYCD) — Facebook and Instagram users freaked out when both platforms experienced issues on Wednesday. Inexplicably, some decided to call 911 to get the problem fixed.
Facebook and Instagram experienced widespread outages, leading some panicked users in Washington state to report their social networking emergencies to 911.
“We will move mountains to help those in our community,” Bothell Police tweeted. “However we can’t fix Facebook so please don’t call 911 to ‘let us know [it’s] down.'”
Facebook said “a networking issue” was to blame for the connection problems.
