Google+ is apparently experiencing an outage. If a social network falls on the internet and nobody's on it, has it actually fallen at all?

G+ is down at least in the U.S. We're getting a 503 server error when we try to pull up the site. The reason for the outage is unclear, but we've reached out to Google for more info and will update when we have a response. In the meantime, call all your social media ninja/maven/rockstar friends and make sure they're okay.[Google+ via Engadget]
