We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can." Users across the US as well as countries in Asia and Europe reported that they were unable to log on to the website and mobile apps. The anonymous hacker group, called "Lizard Squad", apparently has taken responsibility for the downtime. They were the ones who brought down the Malaysian Airlines website, along with Xbox Live and PSN on Christmas Day. Continue reading to see some of the Tweets abut this Facebook outage.

Now if you decided to try this without looking up forum threads online that say it's just a prank, taking a break from the social media network should be at the top of your list, rather than posting a picture of a toasted handset.

Fake Vacation Facebook

Zilla van den Born, a 25-year-old from The Netherlands, decided to trick her friends and family into thinking that she was on a five-week vacation in South-East Asia, when, in reality, she was at home in Amsterdam the whole time, uploading what appeared to be authentic holiday photographs onto Facebook. This was all for a University project in which she wanted to show how social media messages and photographs are not accurate indicators of real life. "I did this to show people that we filter and manipulate what we show on social media. Thereby we create an online ideal world which reality can no longer meet. My goal was to prove how common and easy it is to distort reality," says Born. Continue reading for videos showing her fake trip and a reaction video.
