Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and the other Social Networks are a little Geeky and Slow these last couple of days.

Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and the other Social Networks are a little Geeky and Slow these last couple of days.

All those fake profiles being removed by Social  Networks and Online Media has caused some of the "criminal element" on the internet to strike back with denial of service and other type attacks.

It should end soon, Facebook, and other online Social Networks, have evolved effective defenses that react quickly when attacked.

Eventually Facebook will delete, ban, or block all of the attackers - which stops things for a while, until the next attack.

What's the solution then when your favorite Social Network, or Website, is slow and your posts disappear, or other wierdness?   Wait a bit, maybe even an hour or two and try again.   

You may also gain some speed by resetting your internet connection and restarting your computer.   Also remember to avoid 'peak usage' hours which are at the beginning of the business day, when the kids get home from school, the end of the business day and from 8 to 9 pm.   - Todd W.
