Yesterday, Facebook went down and many TV stations were scratching their heads as what to do?
Local news outlets rely on Facebook to reach viewers and have their talent post pictures of themselves, because they believe that will drive viewers to the newscast.
But then Facebook and its sister sight Instagram both went down.
We had to go a couple of hours not seeing the TV Reporter in a boomerang shot with her Starbucks coffee. It was hell, but somehow we survived.
FTVLive was not impacted, mainly because we have not posted to Facebook in years or Instagram in months.
Talent might have been surprised that despite them not being able to post that selfie, the world still turned on its axis and we didn’t all die.
