- Daventry News - Facebook Down for “Routine Maintenance”
Facebook was unavailable for many users across the globe on Wednesday — a blackout that Facebook’s site attributed to “required maintenance.”
“Facebook will be back soon,” according to a message posted on the social-networking site shortly after the outage began early Wednesday afternoon and is still showing for many users this morning.
In a post on Twitter, Facebook said it was working to resolve the issue “as quickly as possible.”
Facebook also said that the crash was not due to a DDoS attack — in which hackers overwhelm a website’s servers with fake traffic and cause it to crash.
Users quickly took to other social media platforms complaining about issues creating posts, as well as looking at content on the website. Others say they have been unable to access the platform altogether.
“Facebook is down for required maintenance right now, but you should be able to get back on within a few minutes. In the meantime, read more about why you’re seeing this message. Thanks for your patience as we improve the site.”
