FaceBook fixed an issue that caused the site to become inaccessible to some US users on Wednesday. The company suffered from down-time on Wednesday as users in some regions of the US reported having problems when trying to access the site.
While access was completely denied this morning; users can get intermittent access to the site with it either running slow or refusing to follow links.
The Facebook Twitter feed notes, “Facebook may be slow or unavailable for some people because of site issues. We’re working to fix this quickly.” We’re trying to get some more information, and we’ll post an update as soon as we know anything more.
A representative from Facebook said the following in a recent email reported by CNN: “Today we experienced technical difficulties causing the site to be unavailable for a number of users. The issue has been resolved and everyone should now have access to Facebook. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
If you were to take a look at Twitter while Facebook was unavailable, you would have seen how much anxiety was being experienced by people who needed to get their hourly fix of the popular social networking website. There were literally hundreds of tweets posted per second about the DNS failure that Facebook was experiencing.
All is back to normal now, so you can relax, chat with your friends, and make your routine status updates.
