Either Facebook has been hacked, or someone is drunk [Update]

Update: The post has been pulled. No explanation from Facebook on what may have caused it to be posted in the first place, though.

Someone on Facebook’s social media team (lulz) appears to be drunk. The company posted the following status post about 50 minutes ago to its official UK Facebook Page, although it doesn’t show up here in the US:

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

Facebook drunk

A few other possible explanations:

  • Has Facebook been hacked?
  • Is this a secret message?
  • Has Facebook finally succumbed to the inanity of its user’s comments?
  • Is the Timeline becoming self-aware?

What does it mean?! As of 2 PM ET, the post is still live. We’ve contacted Facebook for more information and will update this post when we hear back.

P.S. Yes, it was an official, verified Facebook page:
