As a social media addicted culture, we've all been there...  Unable to connect to Facebook, we start wondering if the service is down, or if it is just us.  Am I out of data?  Is my wifi messed up?  What's the deal?

Down Detector let's you know if a given site is down in your area.

There's even a map showing you where the outrages are:

It also works for dozens of other websites including Google, Netflix, Quickbooks, iTunes, and eBay.
