|Today Facebook is experiencing severe disruption to their service when users were having trouble accessing the Palo Alto company's website. |
The outage is affecting users worldwide on both the main website, as well as mobile platforms. On September 22nd Facebook published on their Twitter that they were having issues with a third-party network provider, which caused some people to be unable to connect. Shortly afterwards they revealed though that this was resolved.
Earlier today we were receiving "Connection reset" errors when trying to access Facebook, though were able to connect after about 10 minutes wait. The service was incredibly slow though. Recently the website was displaying an Internal Server Error message which read:
"An error occured while processing your request.
While writing this post Facebook website became available again, although loading time is around 30 seconds, which is incredibly slow. The Facebook Blog was unavailable for some time as well displaying a "Server not Found" error. The Blog is available now, though the same issue with loading speed applies.
On Twitter the Facebook outage has sparked trending topics, with most recently "Internal Server" trending.
We are reporting the situation using MWeb as an ISP and connecting from Cape Town, South Africa. Where are you and what is your situation?
