For the second time this year, Facebook experienced a brief outage Thursday morning. People who tried to log in throughout the world saw this message: “Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.”
According to most reports, the outage lasted about half an hour, affecting Facebook’s plug-ins as well as Facebook itself. Facebook hasn’t given a reason for why the outage occurred, but it did offer this statement to CNET
Earlier this morning, we experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100 percent. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
For proof of the inconvenience it caused, one need look no further than Twitter.
In February, Facebook experienced some downtime
because of a technical issue.
