Facebook Goes Down; Back Online In Less Than An Hour
It looks like Facebook is down. Many are reporting the outage on Twitter and other social networks.
Even downforeveryoneorjustme.com confirms that Facebook is down.
Facebook has been offline for about 5 minutes at this point. I expect it to go back online any second now.
Here is a screen shot of what happens when you try to access Facebook:
Facebook has sent us a statement, “We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
Update: At about 12:45 p.m. EDT, Facebook is back up for me.
Update #2: Facebook sent another update, “Earlier this morning, some people had trouble accessing Facebook for a short time. We quickly investigated and have fully restored service for everyone. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.”
