Facebook Suffers Outage For Some: Your ‘Account Temporarily Unavailable’

Note: Some Facebook users are experiencing this issue again today, June 6. Read the latest on the current outage here.

Facebook was inaccessible for some users this afternoon starting at about 3:10 p.m. Eastern when they saw an error message that said:

“Your account is currently unavailable due to a site issue. We expect this to be resolved shortly. Please try again in a few minutes.” The outage also hit Facebook’s developers site — developers.facebook.com — where the message was a bit more apologetic:

fb-dev-down

Postscript (4:45 p.m. Eastern): The outage doesn’t appear to be universal. I received reports from many people that they haven’t had a problem accessing the social site. And the DownforEveryoneOrJustMe site reports that Facebook.com is up. I’ve adjusted the headline and story to indicate that it’s not an outage for all, but it’s definitely not just me:

 

I’ve reached out to Facebook for an explanation and will report if I get a reply.

Postscript II (6 p.m. Eastern): From a Facebook spokesperson: A very small number of people had trouble accessing their accounts for a short period of time earlier today. Service has been restored.
