Given that Facebook has become so integrated with the web at large, and in many people’s lives (wait until the Timeline feature rolls out), it can really suck when Facebook isn’t working like it’s supposed to. It can suck for general users, and it can suck for businesses who rely on it for one reason or another, whether that be people logging into their site, using their app, sharing their content, or gaining traffic to their site.

The web relies a lot on Facebook, and with its recent announcements that may just turn out to be the case even more than ever. To put it simply, it can make people a little uneasy or downright frustrated when things aren’t working.

Facebook, while not experiencing a total outage by any means, does appear to be having some issues today. A lot of users are complaining about different ones on Twitter.

Here are some recent tweets:

Facebook is having all kinds of trouble loading right now. Wonder if Timeline is coming tomorrow. #FingersCrossed 2 minutes ago via TweetDeck · powered by @socialditto

Are images on @Facebook broken for anybody else right now? 8 minutes ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Speaking of #Fail, EVERY SINGLE picture on #Facebook is showing up as a broken image link. #sigh 3 minutes ago via web · powered by @socialditto

A lot of the complaints, like the last couple above, are about broken images. That’s not good, considering that Facebook dominates online photos.

Some users have even reported not seeing the ticker feature any longer or that they have been seeing the old version of the news feed. That’s actually been going on since yesterday. We reached out to Facebook this morning for comment, but have yet to hear back.

    The only issue I was having is cityville seemed to not be loading some of the game. While I could play most of it, some of it seemed like it was sluggishly loading, like all the list of tasks to complete was not loading until 10 minutes went by.

    Mine has been broken for over a week. My chat is non-existent with only a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the corner. When I click on my name on the top of the home page to view my page I get the “this page does not exist check your spelling etc” I have sent several messages with no help.

    For it’s not facebook being slow, it’s that the layour has gone crazy! Ill try describe what it looks like. There’s a big blue panel (what looks like the facebook toolbar colour) that extends almost to the bottom of the page. Then on the left it has the icons (friend request, notification, messages) but listed vertically down the side of the page, with on thumbnails showing. Then the search engine bar for facebook is at the bottom of the blue panel and my profile picture is under it. If I try scroll the tiny slit of white at the bottom moves, this is probably my new feed wall, however I cannot see most of it. Also if I click on anything it down’t go to the page. My account works fine on my Dad’s laptop, is it just my computer?! Please help!
