Facebook Down...I Repeat, Facebook Down

19 Jun 2014 | By Tim Mworia | @timworia

BREAKING! The world's largest social networking website has just crashed. Here's the message that will greet you when you log in.

Facebook crashed temporarily this morning between 11 a.m. and 11.30 a.m. local time. The crash reportedly affected other countries as well including India, United Kingdom, Holland, Australia and Japan.

The problem which was accompanied by the message "Sorry, something went wrong" affected Facebook on all platforms: web, mobile and app. For a site with over one billion users, you can bet that the company has lost thousands if not millions of dollars in revenue within that down period.

Meanwhile the hashtag #AsFacebookWasDown quickly gained traction on rival social site Twitter.

Facebook are yet to issue a statement but this is just one more in a recent history of blackouts for them. The social-networking site has been through this in June and December of 2012 and the most significant one (for approximately 2.5 hours) in September 2010 for which they offered this statement.
