Yesterday, Facebook and Instagram were having problems. Inexplicably, some decided to call 911 to get the problem fixed.

Facebook and Instagram experienced widespread outages on Wednesday, leading some panicked users in Bothell, Wash., to report their social networking emergencies to 911.

"We will move mountains to help those in our community," Bothell Police tweeted. "However we can't fix Facebook so please don't call 911 to 'let us know [it's] down.'"

Facebook said "a networking issue" was to blame for the connection problems. How much did Facebook and Instagram going down impact your day?
