Facebook Down Again After Overnight Outage

By: Josh Wolford - June 1, 2012

It appears that Facebook is having some problems this morning, only a few hours after straightening everything out following an outage that lasted for more than two hours on Thursday night. That outage affected a good number of users across the world, and people took to Twitter to complain (and crack IPO jokes, as would be expected).

By late Thursday evening, most of the problems had been worked out. Facebook issued a statement that said:

“Earlier today, some users briefly experienced issues loading the site. The issues have since been resolved and everyone should now have access to Facebook.”

But it appears that the problems aren’t quite over – or at least they have resurfaced. Website activity site downforeveryoneorjustme confirms that “it’s not just you.” Facebook.com looks down from their eyes.

Personally, Facebook is loading for me, albeit a bit slow. Folks are once again taking to Twitter to comment:

Is Facebook down yet again? Yikes. #socialmedia

    They say fb is repaired yet I still can’t access my account. And when I go to their help center to try and resolve my issue it simply won’t work either. So frustrated that fb claims its fixed but mine isn’t

      it’s not just you. Some people can access their accounts just fine. Others, like me, get the “Facebook is currently down for maintenance” message. I haven’t been able to log on since last night. BTW, their help center is completely useless.

    FB went down in Vienna, Austria around 7:00 PM. It’s 9:00 PM now and it’s still not working.
