Numerous Users Reporting That Facebook Is Down

-Error Icon-Numerous Facebook users are reporting that the site is unavailable. We’ve also been experiencing some significant delays in accessing the site this evening, with areas of the site not responding at all. While we’d expect Facebook to resolve the issue in the near future, plenty of users are actively tweeting about the downtime issues. If you happen to be based in the United States, you truly need to step away from the computer at this point! What makes this significant is that Facebook rarely experiences any downtime at all.

While refreshing the site I’ve also noticed that large portions of the site are unavailable. However if you are truly desperate to check the site, you can currently access it via mobile devices while the main site faces reliability issues. As far as we can tell Facebook has is working to restore the functionality, yet plenty of users are continuing to report that they can’t access the site. Let us know in the comments: are you able to access Facebook?
