Facebook had an oops-daisies moment yesterday afternoon and the entire world became crazy. While the server-crash lasted for some 30 minutes, it felt like the globe was facing a power failure. Everyone was making a whole lot of noises- some making fun with #facebookdown while others followed it up with questions as to why it happened. While the whole mayhem was going on, we talked to a few people in Gurgaon to take their view as to what will happen if Facebook disappears from our lives.
A human resource employee
said, ''First of all Facebook is already becoming passe in many first
world country. But in India, if we really think, then it is going to
pose a problem with us in our professional world
, as we seek out a
candidate through Facebook to do a background check. So in a world
where Facebook is no more available, this would get difficult.''
Another person, who is a
journalist denied that it is going to change much of our world. She
said, ''Orkut got replaced. We adjusted with the change and moved on.
I feel if and when we live in a world
minus Facebook, it would be the
same- it will go on and we would adjust.''
With the advancement of
selfies and belfies and other fies, Facebook has definitely bought in
the photograph revolution. People are conscious of the poses they
give and picture have become an integral part of everyone's life. It
was Facebook, which made us so conscious. Speaking like a true
photographer, Abhishek Thapa, living in Gurgaon said, '' It would be
the end of an era for sure. As for photography, it would be the end
of selfies. I am sure Instagram would not be as popular as Facebook,
since Instagram is more about quality than quantity and Facebook is
always about quantity than quality.''
Navneet Singh, a girl who
loves to gossip when questioned was aghast at the prospect. She said,
''How can you even think like that. It was a minor glitch and
Facebook recovered. The world would literally stop without
Facebook.'' The world would not stop but for some people, it just
you for subscribing to our news letter.
