Facebook Down: Service Unavailable – DNS failure

We have been getting reports that the social network site Facebook has been experiencing problems. It seems as if the site keeps coming up then going down with the message saying Service Unavailable – DNS failure.

I went on a few moments ago and Facebook was down, then tried again and it came back up. We are not certain what it going on, but we do know that the 500 million plus users will not be happy.

Huffington Post reports that DownRightNow said that service disruption” is “likely.” However, we are not certain what is causing the issue. I have had a number of my friends who live in different parts of the world contact me to ask if it was down for me as well — so we know that it is happening in other countries as well.

This is the second time in as many days that Facebook has been down; only yesterday Mashable reported a disruption due to a “third party networking provider.” We wonder if this is the same or a separate issue? Is Facebook down for you?
