Facebook suffers outage as profiles, pages stop working for users

Posted by iwgcr

A large number of Facebook users have reported that profiles and pages on the service had a few hours of downtime on November 8 2013. The issue, affecting profiles from approximately 10:30am Eastern Standard Time until 1pm, prevented page content from loading, and instead showed the error “Sorry, but this page didn’t load properly. Please try again.”

A spokesperson stated:  ”Earlier today, we experienced an issue that prevented some people from loading Timeline or Pages content for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and content is back to normal. We’re sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused.”

Though no reason for the fault was provided by the company, the wording of the statement strongly suggests that the issue is something caused internally, rather than an external attack.
