Facebook faces technical issue, shuts down for sometime

Facebook released an official statement confirming the technical issue.

Late Monday evening, thousands of users across the globe — specifically Asia found that they were unable to log in to Facebook. It was unclear what caused the error, however; many people from parts of New Zealand, Australia and North America were affected.

Users took to Twitter to express their disappointment over the given glitch. “The hashtags #facebookdown and #facebookisdown were gaining traction of Twitter within 10 minutes of the crash,” Stuff reported.

Later, Facebook released a statement saying, “Earlier today, some Facebook users were unable to access Facebook briefly due to a technical issue. We have now fixed the issue and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

The site was apparently functional after 30 minutes of inactivity.
