Why Isnt Facebook Working Right Now

September 23, 2010 by USA Post 

Why Isnt Facebook Working Right Now, Unless you are the most diligent worker on the planet, you’ve probably seen that Facebook has had an interruption of nearly all afternoon. The site seems to be now, at least for me, but its availability has been erratic (it is 14:00 Pacific as I write this.)

When I emailed Facebook for an update, I have the following response: “We are experiencing some problems caused by the Facebook site to be slow or unavailable to some users. We are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.”

Unlike Twitter, which experienced frequent cuts in its early days and again this summer during the World Cup, Facebook has appeared much more reliable. Today, however, you could see signs of their failure all over the Internet – not only on the Facebook site itself, but also on any site using “like” Facebook button. At VentureBeat, for example, that we actually remove the buttons on Facebook because they were slowing down the site too. (If not, I have a screenshot of the error message below VentureBeat.) And just as twitter users take Facebook to complain when Twitter goes down, phrases like “total failure” (which was one of the error messages on Facebook) and “Facebook isn’t (sic) work” quickly took over the board trending topics on Twitter.
