Facebook Goes Offline For Third Time This Month

Facebook crashes again this month

Facebook crashed late Monday afternoon to the dismay of thousands of users, but there’s good news: The social media site was restored after a nearly 40-minute total blackout, and several hours of partial problems.

The cause of the crash was “a configuration issue,” though what that means wasn’t immediately clear.

As of 6:58 p.m. EDT, Down Detector reported there were “no problems at Facebook.” A graph showed that many users had difficulty with the social media site at 3 p.m. EDT. Nearly four hours later, full service had been restored for most users.

More than half of the people experiencing problems witnessed a total blackout of the site, Down Detector reported. More than 30 percent had problems logging in, and nearly 15 percent had difficulty with photos.

Since Facebook wasn’t working properly, hundreds of netizens flocked to Twitter to tweet about their dismay. The hashtag #FacebookDown soon became a popular trend on the 140-character miniblog.
