Earlier today, I was having issues with Google Chrome crashing every now and then. What fixed it was disabling sync and logging out of my Google account in Chrome. I also had errors logging into Gmail, but after a few minutes, it was back up. Now, Facebook is down. And from this post on Mashable, it’s happening all over the world.
Usually, Facebook acts up when they’re updating something. So far, I’m pretty happy with what they’ve improved, though businesses might have a different point of view. But, everyone started to freak out because of Facebook’s outage. Needless to say, Facebook has been one of the go-to websites of people today. And with my work as a Social Media Manager, the downtime affects me big time.
I’m not sure what’s happening, but looks like it’s one major and important update that the Facebook team resorted to a wide outage that has been going on for at least 10 minutes now. I’m restless and excited at the same time. 😀
When I access their site, this is the error I get:
In Chrome, it says “This webpage is not available”. When I checked Facebook’s status on Down For Everyone Or Just Me, it gave me this:
I’ve been checking some of the people on my local Twitter feed, and no one seems to be complaining. I guess I’m the only one wide awake and are on social media sites because of work – the rest of them are on their way to work.
If you can’t access Facebook too, let me know at the comments section where you’re from. If you want to read updates on the status of Facebook, check this post on Mashable.
- 6:41pm EST – Facebook is back up, but is working really slow. Other people are still complaining that they can’t access yet.
