Facebook Is Down! Service Outage Frustrates Users

Facebook is down!For many, Facebook is currently down and has been down all day.  Here in Washington DC it is still down for me.  Today Facebook has experienced one of the largest outages since it’s outage last month, August 31st.  Facebook recently made a response to the outage on their Twitter page but that hasn’t stopped the complaints!


Update: It is back up here in DC as of 9:00pm EDT

Moments ago Facebook updated their Twitter page letting users know that they’ve “fixed the issue”,  but so far I’ve still been unable to login.

Unlike Twitter, when Facebook breaks it doesn’t even show a fail whale, it’s just down!

As usual Twitter is being bombarded by related comments complaining about the outage.

    Seattle 1:56pm – Facebook fan page is up but still cannot login. Funny how Twitter is becoming the “News Alert” for sites. 1 consolidated way to alert you customers about system / website outages.

    It’s been coming up and down all day for me. Was able to log in, 10 minutes later I get a DNS error. Now I still can’t log in.
