Facebook goes down temporarily in India and other parts of the world, but later restored: www.facebook.com
WOW, its really shocking to know this, but you know things happen you cant be invincible always Facebook proved it.
Sites go down…!!!
Based on the news and twitter posts: The world’s biggest social networking site Facebook went down temporarily in parts of Europe, with users in some countries outside the region also reporting problems.
Countries affected included:India, Ireland, UK, Pakistan and South Korea.
If there were any more countries affected please share??
Statement from Facebook:
“Today we experienced technical difficulties causing the site to be unavailable for a number of users in Europe,” Facebook said in a statement. “The issue has been resolved and everyone should now have access to Facebook. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
Many places we have read different reasons why it was down, but i think the news from CERN has it correct.
CERT.be: the federal cyber emergency team for Belgium, said:
Facebook was hit by a DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack.
But facebook returned with a statement, that the site was unavailable in Europe because of technical difficulties, and had been restored, according to news reports.
They were not willing to respond to a request for a comment on the outage.
The outage in may countries were delayed by 30min – 2hrs, so it was not a big deal, they are back online now!!!
It seems from news that Facebook had another outage in February, a day after filing for its initial public offering.
