Facebook down?

Appears to be in Oregon, Southern Oregon. Mobile too.

This is awesome. Though I think this will be more of a time sink with employees F5ing until Facebook is back online.

Down from Los Angeles.

SJC too

Down out of the VA/DC area also.

W. PA. too. Looks pretty widespread.

Works here (large .edu in Western PA). I would expect there to be rioting in the streets if FB was down.


Back up now (from Toronto) with the following IPs (,2a03:2880:10:cf07:face:b00c:0:1)

Was down when I first checked.

Up here on Comcast in Tennessee.

It wasn't loading here in the UK either, although it's back now.

facebook.com. 453 IN A

So perhaps different dns entries are just cached depending on geographical

PS: What do you pay for a loop up there?

-- jra

it totally was not down from interstellar orbit. You didn't have time to
tell because rtt from interstellar space is 11 hours minimum, which is even
worse than some cellular data operators. Pants on fire.

Can anyone confirm if it was down in the MD/DC, Northern Oregon, Eastern PA
and Palo Alto areas? I'm dying to know.


What would I be doing with a load balancer as an alternative time-waste for Facebook?

Or are you suggesting that I would amuse myself by lowering the brightness of my keyboard backlight?

I am confused by your comment.


Really? I'm in the UK too (London) and it was fine for me the whole time. I do have an IPv6 tunnel to HE though, so maybe it was fine on v6 and only down via v4??

Yep, completely out for me here. Couldn't even get as much as an error page most of the time, although I did briefly get a generic message saying "Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can".

I'm on Virgin Media cable for IPv4 and a SIXXS tunnel hosted by Goscomb in London for IPv6.

Multiple people in a UK techy IRC channel that I frequent were also reporting it as down at the time.
