For a whole hour yesterday morning, Facebook and its photo sharing app Instagram were down.

It was rumoured that the outage was as a result of a 3rd party attack but the social networking giant denied that claiming it was as a result of a change that affected their configuration settings.

Immediately after word went round that the sites were down, the hashtag #Facebookdown was trending worldwide. Here are the best memes.
