Facebook down 19/06/2014

Posted on June 19, 2014 by

I went to check twitter briefly this morning and saw a few tweets saying facebook was down…. I went to check by updating the feed on my phone, and indeed nothing was updating.

On a desktop browser, this is the message that appears:

This is pretty rare for facebook and just goes to show that any web service is vulnerable to downtime no matter how large or small the operation.

I’m sure there are many developers at facebook scratching their heads and running around desperately trying to repair whatever issue has caused the site to come down…

As much as this is a pain for millions (billions?) of people around the world it does show that you cannot guarantee uptime forever in any environment…

So for now while it is down…. enjoy the world around you… or just jump over to twitter until facebook returns…..

UPDATE: 19/06/2014 09:25 – Site came back up the moment I posted this! In total, it was down between about 09:05 and 09:25.
