You aren’t alone: Facebook is down right now [Update]

by: Andrew GrushAugust 1, 2014


Can’t seem to get Facebook to load, regardless of whether it’s your phone, tablet or your PC? You aren’t alone. Apparently Facebook is done for many, myself included. It’s been at least 10-20 minutes now, and it’s unclear how long this outage will last.

On the bright side for us Google fans, Google+ is operating perfectly. As someone who rarely uses Facebook (except to communicate with family, mostly), I can’t say this outage affects me even close to the degree that an outage of Google services does — but that’s just me.

Anyhow, we’ll update date you when we learn more, or if service returns. So how about it, is everything done for you, or is Facebook working just fine?

Update (11:30AM CST): At least on our end, everything seems to be working again. How about you, up and running or still down?
