I don’t think Facebook will face any significant consequences if this is just a network failure. People will probably forget about this very soon. The main reason why it made such a fuss is that all three platforms gone down at the same time so the only other similar platform people switch to was Twitter. I don’t use Facebook often particularly but the main way I use it is to find events happening near me and also organise events myself. There is a platform specifically for this but I don’t think it can really replace Facebook so I don’t see myself stopping using Facebook specifically any time soon. And the other two, they obviously don’t have real competition and still have a massive user base. The only way I see this company suffering for real if there was something fishy behind all this, but again, humans tend to forget and forgive without difficulty.
