‘Likely service disruption’ affects Facebook users

October 21, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A “likely service disruption” struck Facebook on Monday, preventing its 1.15 billion members from updating their status on the social media website.

Facebook reported that it has addressed a glitch that left users around the world reporting problems updating their status on the site.

“Earlier this morning, while performing some network maintenance, we experienced an issue that prevented some users from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time,” a Facebook spokesman told FoxNews.com. “We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100 percent. We’re sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused.”

The “issue” had left millions of users temporarily unable to like posts, post comments or upload photos.

Users trying to do so were met with an error message that stated: “There was a problem updating your status. Please try again in a few minutes.”

“Facebook status update issues are not uncommon, but this one seems global – we’ve tested it from several IPs and received the same message,” technology website Mashable.com reported.

Downrightnow.com, which monitors service outages on major websites, reported at 9:30 a.m. that Facebook had encountered a “likely service disruption.”

The problem was sufficiently widespread for #facebookdown to become a trending hashtag on Twitter.
