Durban - Social media site, Facebook crashed on Monday evening. Much to the disappointment and utter dismay of the hundreds of thousands who live their lives vicariously through their online personas. 

But it didn't take long for word to hit the Twitter streets and the meme kings and queens to get the ball rolling!

The 'crash' didn't last long though.

Facebook, Inc. is an American online social media and social networking service company based in Menlo Park, California. Its website was launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg, along with fellow Harvard College students and roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.
