Facebook was down on desktops due to a DNS "server not found" error, but apparently still worked on mobile devices. Users took to Twitter to vent their frustrations:
@barunsen: Facebook is down! Life has stopped in India! Everyone is jobless..+N RT
Facebook is still down in India? WTH!
Facebook's down in India. And thus I have no reason to keep living.
Ah..so the facebook is down in India? *Points & laugh* bwhahaha
WTH? No word on why the site was having problems, but there may be a link to the aforementioned censorship trial that commenced today. Could Facebook be putting their foot down a bit here?
Facebook was also down in parts of Europe recently, but service was promptly restored.
