Facebook Down; Not Accessible on Web
By on July 5th, 2012

Just a week after suffered a massive outage, seems to be suffering it’s own outage and is not accessible on the web. The problem seems to be happening only at http://www.facebook.com and not on mobile devices for now.

A couple of years ago, Facebook suffered two similar outages one of which was related to a new feature rollout and one was related to a programmatic error. It looks like the current outage is similar to the previous ones.

The current outage does not affect mobile versions of Facebook, so you can continue accessing and updating Facebook on your mobile devices. As a workaround you can access Facebook using http://m.facebook.com or http://iphone.facebook.com on your web browser.

We have reached out to Facebook for info on this outage and will update this post when we have more to share.

Update: This outage may be restricted to a few users as some users are still able to access Facebook web.
