Facebook Comes Back Online: Social Network Returns After 30-minute Global Outage Leaves Users Frustrated
Facebook seems to be back up after being down in several countries for roughly 30 minutes, which can be considered the longest outage yet experienced by the social networking giant.
Yes, Facebook is down, and access seems to be down across several regions in the world (from the US to the Philippines), judging by the reactions on the Twitter-verse, where the hashtag #facebookdown is currently trending.
There’s no other word from Facebook on the reason behind the downtime. The ‘Go Back’ link below the message redirects the user to the login page. Logging in brings the user back to the same page.
The access problem is not limited to the Web, but is also being experienced on the mobile apps, with the message ‘Error loading News Feed’ being displayed.
Twitter responses to Facebook being were varied, with people asking if it was real, to others tweeting about the crash.
There were funny tweets as well, with an example being, “#Facebook refugees are flooding on Twitter. Look at them all lost, disorientated, hopelessly trying to post cute baby photos #facebookdown”
