TEMPLE, Texas — The internet went into a frenzy Monday morning when most of the world realized that their Facebook services, which include popular apps like Instagram and WhatsApp were down.
Users were faced with frozen feeds, disappearing content and slow loading.
The website Downdetector, which tracks submitted problem reports for websites, apps and social media noted that issues started to spike dramatically after about 9 a.m. Eastern.

Even during times of chaos, the internet finds a way to make joke. Here are some of the best memes we've seen so far:
