Facebook is known for having formidable uptime as social networking giant rarely experiences failure due to technical reasons. However, earlier today, the network suffered a major panic among its users as the social networking platform went down unexpectedly and affected several thousand users across the world.
As the network went down for approximately half an hour, users turned to other social media networks to express their panic as one of the users Tweeted, “OMG!!! #facebook is down and I can’t even get to Facebook to tell all my facebook friends that facebook is down!!”
The company is yet to confirm what caused the downtime across the world for the network as the latest event comes after another Facebook owned service WhatsApp went down for users for several countries recently. Since coming back, users have managed to use the service as normal.
