Well, I had a thought yesterday that because Instagram, FB and Snapchat?
were down the issue was the same with IBM (but the question is, why
would IBM offload their own sites?) Alas, it was not the case. Wishful
thinking.

You are completely correct. I don't know why I thought it was sites
reading other sites cookies, rather than say a third party ad-network
cookie following the user. I can only guess that years ago I confuddled
third party cookies with non host-only (second level domain) cookies.
Its a good job I've never worked on public websites for a living!
