facebook logoFacebook, one of the world’s most popular social networks does look as though it is down and out for now – at least for the past quarter of an hour, and most probably longer than that. Those who make an attempt to load Facebook on a browse will receive the error message, “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.”

Update: Facebook is now up and running. I guess whatever gremlin that was in the system has been flushed out.

Do take note that this is not the first time that Facebook has experienced an outage, as the Internet went wild just in June this year when Facebook experienced an outage as well. This is going to be embarassing for the company for sure. Since Facebook is down at the moment, don’t bother to attempt accessing it on your mobile device since the content will simply refuse to reresh.

There are some folks who were able to load the website, but upon clicking on one of the links or buttons there, they too, were faced with a similar error message. As at press time, it has not yet been determined as to what caused the outage of Facebook at this point in time, and hopefully the engineers over at Facebook will be able to fix whatever’s broken in there to get things up and running again. After all, the average American might not know how else to spend their 40 minutes today if Facebook remains down and out.
