I haven't been able to log into Facebook all day. Just kicks me back to the login screen with no error message apart from "you must be logged in to view that page". Tried resetting my password, but no dice.

No mention of it on their front page or blog or whatever. Anyone else have these problems? /addict

It's Microsoft's fault.

But seriously, it's been working fine for me today, and right now.

Actually I was looking through a friend's photos just now and I got kicked out with the "you must be logged in" message, but logging in worked right away.

The arrangement gives Microsoft control over the placement of banner ads on Facebook outside the U.S., where about 60% of Facebook's 49 million active users reside.
Hopefully it stays that way.

Yeah.

****in' commies deserve those ads. After all, it's their fault for being in the majority.

Yeah, someone should make a Dashboard widget with some faux Lounge threads, so when the 'NN goes down we can all flip to the widget and exorcise our personal demons. A couple of Photoshop threads, some standard gay, Christian, American, and Canadian-baiting, and one thread devoted to the fact that 'NN is down.

It'd really be cool if the widget could periodically post synthesized, plausible posts from other members in the little faux threads.
