When our main methods of communication are taken away, you can bet that it’ll be a topic of conversation for some time to come. Facebook’s recent widespread outage has provoked all sorts of comments about the social network, and now we’ve got a little more for you.
Stuff‘s publisher Toby Shapshak spoke to the fine folks at 5FM’s Dan Corder on the 5 Breakfast show about just what went down on Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp earlier this week. On the off-chance you weren’t in your car or tuned to 5FM at the time, we’ve got the fifteen-minute segment here for you right now — because there’s so such thing as being subject to a radio station’s schedule anymore.
Don’t like embedded content? That’s also fine, you can head over to 5FM’s website and listen to it (along with the rest of the 5 Breakfast show) there. Or you can download it from there and listen to Toby Shapshak a little later. That’s the best thing about the modern world — just about everything can be done at your own pace… except most government or finance-related interactions. Those still have to wait for business hours.
