Day After Their S-1 Filing, Facebook Goes Down

When you Talk about bad timing, Facebook seemed to be having operational issues on Thursday, less than 20 hours after filing paperwork to allow the company to go public this spring, in an IPO that is expected to fetch somewhere between $75 and $100 billion. 

Many Twitter users pointed there finger at the hacker group Anonymous, which earlier this week denied reports to Mashable that it had any plans to hack the popular website.Their Twitter account, where they usually take credit for hacking jobs did not mention the outage. Luckily for Facebook addicts and fans the outage seems to have only lasted for a few minutes, making it mostly humorous for users.
