The world stopped turning early Thursday morning.

That’s what happens when Facebook goes offline, as it did for about 30 minutes due to a technical glitch that was repaired before most Americans hit the snooze alarm.

Nevertheless, some of the most hardcore of Facebook’s 1.2 billion users worldwide faced a few minutes without the uber-successful social media website.

Heaven forbid they power down and do something archaic, like read a book. Or take a nap.

Or talk to someone, face to face.

Come to think of it, a few Facebook-less minutes would be good for all of us.
