Did Facebook Just Break Half the Internet?

   "UPDATE: Facebook responded with the following statement:  For a short
    period of time, there was a bug that redirected people logging in with
    Facebook from third party sites to Facebook.com. The issue was quickly
    resolved, and Login with Facebook is now working as usual.  We've
    asked for more information. But in the meantime, it's good to know one
    small glitch at Facebook can effectively disable the entire internet
    by redirecting it to their site."

already got Facebook?
