It's not just you. Facebook is down for some users, and for many who can access the social network things are moving pretty slowly.
Just ask Twitter.
This is not the only major outage for Facebook in recent memory. Facebook went down twice over a period of two days back in June.

These outages are not just frustrating for Facebook users. Facebook itself suffers from extended outages. Reports indicate that June's 20-30 minute outage cost the company over $500,000 in ad revenue.
