Its not down globally - just some places, may either depend on geographic location or accounts.

Boy, I didn't realize it was such an issue. I've only had maybe 5 minutes of down time total today that I noticed, and I figured it was the corporate network I'm on. Still working for me... although my news feed is quite sparse!

For a good laugh, visit twitter and look at the real-time tweets.

"BREAKING NEWS: Facebook is down. Worker productivity rises. U.S. climbs out of recession. "

"Facebook is down. I hate to be the one to tell you but all your Farmville animals died and your crops burned. Have a nice day. "

"Facebook is down. Nine months from today, many kids will be born"

" It seems Facebook is down and Zuckerberg won't bring it back up unless we promise not to see the movie. "



But the best one is Facebook using a competitor's service to say what is happening. http://twitter.com/facebook

It just means I'll waste my time online elsewhere......

I'm sure there's folks who are freaking out because they've can't play Mafia Wars, Farmville, or Airline Manager (someone may need to check on a few A.nutters who play.....).

This outage has been going on in spurts since yesterday. Throw in the Twitter spam hack attack on Tuesday and it's been a rough week for social networking sites.

Not too bothered really. As much as I use it, I know it'll be back eventually.

I don't get people who freak out and don't know what they should do without it - Facebook hasn't always existed so it shouldn't be a major thing.

Negative. The IP works for the login page only, the rest of the site is still inaccesible.

Why not, he gets blamed for everything else with the world.

I'm surprised someone hasn't started ranting about how he is responsible for the Commonwealth Games fiasco, the BBC's financial difficulties, or last week's thunderstorm. Oh, wait, that's global warming, which is his fault...

Only Richard Nixon gets blamed for more things.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan and generally think he was either the worst or the second worst president of my lifetime - his place varies depending on whether or not Jimmy Carter has said anything stupid recently - but really, it gets to be a bit much sometimes.

As for Facebook, it appears to be back up, so I can go find out who this mystery woman who wants to be my friend is.

UPDATE: It's sort of working, you can log in but it's loading strangely and slowly. That could just be volume, as the Mafia Wars and the Farmville addicts hit the site. Or it could still be having issues.

And I don't recognize the woman and we appear to have no friends in common, so that'd be a "decline, spammer!"

I disagree. Productivity would drop to near zero in the short term, because people would be on all kinds of other websites (like this one) talking about it, if not simply migrating to the water cooler to discuss it.

I didn't miss a thing, it is surprising how many people always have the browse open on facebook, so when it is down everyone gets withdrawal symptoms.

How about the status updates from some people once facebook returns.
