Facebook Goes Down In Worldwide Outage
« on: January 27, 2015, 03:19:02 PM »
Facebook suffered a worldwide outage this morning that stopped users across the globe from accessing the social network.

The website and smartphone apps were unable to reach Facebook from about 9am GMT, and resumed normal service at 9:24am GMT.

I contacted Facebook for information, but received no response. However it did release a statement to the Guardian: “Earlier this morning, we experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100%. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused”.



It didn’t comment any further on the cause of the outage.

Facebook users turned to other social networks, including Twitter, to express their annoyance – with #Facebookdown quickly trending. Typically, some brands used it as a marketing opportunity.

This is the first time Facebook has been down for any length of time since 2010. Then, an error occurred that caused the Facebook database to crash for two and a half hours. This was caused, as Facebook explained, by an automation flaw: “The key flaw that caused this outage to be so severe was an unfortunate handling of an error condition. An automated system for verifying configuration values ended up causing much more damage than it fixed”.
