  • 2. Facebook has had outages here and there over the last few years. In December, the social network suffered a DNS issue that caused some people temporarily being unable to reach the site. And in October, the company inadvertently caused many users across Europe to be knocked off the site after problems with traffic optimization tests. It’s unclear what exactly is causing the outage now. Web site monitoring service downrightnow.com is currently reporting Facebook’s status as “Likely Service Disruption,” and at the time of this writing it suggests that the site has had intermittent access for the last three hours. Updated at 9:25 p.m. PT with comment from a Facebook spokesperson: “Earlier today we experienced a DNS issue that briefly prevented people who typed ‘facebook.com’ into their browsers from reaching the site. People who accessed the site using a mobile app, typed ‘www.facebook.com’ into their browsers, or used a bookmark or a search engine to navigate to the site were not affected. We resolved the issue quickly, and the fix should be fully propagated now. We apologize for any inconvenience.” Source Article from http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57566336-93/facebook-endures-hours-long-outage-in-the-u. s/ Waddywood.com Facebook endures hours-long outage in the US – CNET 2/2Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)
