Facebook got it wrong.
Facebook has been shut down for a while today.
Facebook, one of the world’s most popular social networking sites, crashed this morning for around half an hour.
The outage was reported around the world; in countries including Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, Japan and Holland.
The crash happened at around 9am, with the Facebook blue branding displayed alongside the message: “Sorry, something went wrong.”
By 9.20am, the site refused to load at all, with the message “service unavailable” shown on a white background.
However, by 9.30am users reported the site was functioning again.
Facebook has 1.3 billion monthly active users, making it one of the most popular websites in the world.
