A large number of Facebook users have reported that profiles and pages on the service had a few hours of downtime earlier today. The issue, affecting profiles from approximately 10:30am Eastern Standard Time until 1pm, prevented page content from loading, and instead showed the error "Sorry, but this page didn't load properly. Please try again."

A spokesperson told The Next Web "Earlier today, we experienced an issue that prevented some people from loading Timeline or Pages content for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and content is back to normal. We're sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused."

Though no reason for the fault was provided by the company, the wording of the statement strongly suggests that the issue is something caused internally, rather than an external attack.

According to ZDNet, Facebook suffered a similar widespread issue on October 21st. That incident also lasted for only a few hours, and prevented users from being able to read or post on status pages. That incident was caused while the site was undergoing network maintenance.
