Google is Down

Google Suffers Outage

I never thought I would see the day, but early this am Google appeared to be down in some parts of the world.

Rose from adventuresinsavings.com sent a tweet just before midnight stating she was unable to access blogger.com or her blog that’s on blogger.

After several tries and a search on Twitter she learned that Google was down- for some users.

There had been no confirmation from Google them-self, but several users stated that they were unable to use Google services.

Using Google’s Realtime Twitter search you could see multiple users Tweeting Google was down.

Here are some tweets from people reporting Google was down:

You can see the spike about 12 am.

Was Google down for you?

    Yes! Google was down for me and all my friends in this city!! (For about the last 3 hours) We had a huge thunder and lightning storm earlier today, so it left me wondering if that could have had anything to do with it.
    Thanks for the post!

    I haven’t seen an update from Google regarding what caused it.

    Ive been doing searches, using Reader, Gmail, etc.

    No problem here — except it is too darn late and I need to go back to bed.

    I don’t think it was for me. Though I wasn’t on Google per se, I WAS on Blogger.

    Kind of scary to think how reliant we have become on some aspects of technology.
