    For those who operate businesses on Facebook and/or are planning events
    this is a real problem. It IS. . . a BIG DEAL.
    It’s NOT for just looking at photos of your Lunch or friends.

    As big a deal as you losing your email service.
    If another country/ Russia or North Korea did this, we’d be at war.
    Its NOT just Facebook’s advertising revenue, its entire businesses shut down that operate on the facebook platform. Events/ clubs/ entertainment/ sales of all kinds, etc.
    Small businesses lost millions on Facebook, when it shuts down.
    WHY dont they have a duplicate-backup system?
    WE DO ! !
    We have 3 computers backed up and ready to go if one shuts down.
