As Facebook users went to check their status and happenings, they were in absolute shock. The Facebook was down from 1:20 PM till 2:02 PM.Was it an attack on the server, planned maintenance or some bug fixing, but this was the thing, which was not usual, specially when we are talking about a giant like Facebook.At first users feel that might be net was not working, but when they found other websites working, they were surprised, immediately they try to get in touch with their friends to check the news and it was authentic.Well now users are afraid, might be this small down could be permanent.Users are shocked at this stage, they dont know whom to connect, what to do, some are also concern about their data.There are few who are thinking that it might be hacked, now what real story is we will get to know soon, once we get confirmed news. Would keep you guys posted.What do you think what would be life without facebook.
There's no other word from Facebook on the reason behind the downtime. Access from the mobile app also seems to be down, with the message 'Error loading News Feed' being displayed.
The short shutdown drew attention across the web with many taking to Twitter to ask what all the fuss was about.
Facebook apologised for the problem but did not say what caused it.
"Earlier this morning, we experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100%. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused."
It is not yet clear how many countries were affected.
