Not all accounts were affected, but there were enough to create quite a stir for its users.

According to Gina Smith at — the website has confirmed the problem existed for two hours. Facebook had no comment about the problem at the time of this writing.

    @Cindy…it’s not just you. If you do a #Facebook you will see people complaining about it globally.

    A few of my friends here in the US have been affected, but some haven’t.

    We’ll keep our eye on this developing story.

    I’ve been suspended since that time, and still cannot log-in, after getting through the “Captcha” I get this:
    Sorry, something went wrong.

    We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.
    Anybody else with this problem?
