Facebook Down Today: How long was the outage for you?

By Gary Johnson - Sep 22, 2010

We have news today that social networking sit Facebook is down. Many users are complaining via other sites such as Twitter they cannot log on.

I have been able to log on myself so the site is not down for everyone. KMBC are saying the first reports of problems started to come in at 1 p.m. central time. Users at KMBC-TV managed to access Facebook at around 2 p.m., but reported slow service. The service via wireless devices also came back on at the same time, but was also patchy. There has been no word from Facebook yet about the downtime.

Blake Sabatinelli of abc Action News has come up with five things to do while Facebook is down, 1 use your Twitter account to let people know what you are doing, 2 make a quiche, 3 go out and enjoy the weather, 4 read a book, and 5 get back to work.

At the time of writing it seems some people are still having trouble getting on to Facebook. Have you had problems using Facebook? If so how long was Facebook down for you?

  • Valerie

    I came onto facebook to get onto an application and saw it was down. I haven't been on since like 1:30p est, so I can't give an exact time. It had been quite slow acting prior to that. Maybe it was able to crash. Well I guess this means I can take a nap or make dinner!
