I tried multiple Facebook domains and all seem to have been down.
Everybody is crying millions of people are confused. What can they do now without facebook?
Facebook was down for 20 minutes. Which means the world did stand still for 20 minutes.
I believe they are getting hit from zombi computers.
Waiting to see their explanation.
Facebook users have been seeing the site go online and offline on Thursday. The company issued a statement but gave no explanation as to the cause of the problem:
We’re currently experiencing some site issues causing Facebook to be slow or unavailable for some users. We are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
The downtime also affected the many sites that incorporate Facebook’s “Like” buttons and the Facebook Connect service. Many Web sites bore empty white boxes or error messages where Facebook’s content should be.
Facebook’s developer Web site remained up and noted that the company was experiencing problems with its application programming interface, which outside programmers and sites use to interact with Facebook. A statement on the site said:
Current Status: API Latency Issues
We are currently experiencing latency issues with the API, and we are actively investigating. We will provide an update when either the issue is resolved or we have an ETA for resolution.
Update: Facebook said in a statement that it had resolved its problems: “Today we experienced technical difficulties causing the site to be unavailable for a number of users. The issue has been resolved and everyone should now have access to Facebook. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
Update: In a fairly technical mea culpa posted on its Web site, Facebook said that its worst outage in four years lasted 2.5 hours and was caused by an “unfortunate handling of an error condition.” The company also apologized to its users.
