Facebook suffers outage as profiles, pages stop working for users
A large number of <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/297990==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/10/30/large.growth.in.monthly.active.users.on.mobile.boo sts.bottom.line/" rel='nofollow'>Facebook</a> 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." <br />
<br />
A spokesperson <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/297988==http://thenextweb.com/facebook/2013/11/08/facebook-timelines-profiles-pages-failing-load-many-users/" rel='nofollow'>told</a> <em>The Next Web</em> "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." <br />
<br />
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. <br />
<br />
According <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/297989==http://www.zdnet.com/frazzled-facebook-is-only-partly-functional-7000022205/" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>ZDNet</em>, 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.
