Facebook is down, have Anonymous gone through with their threat?

Facebook is DOWN, have Anonymous struck gold?

| BREAKING STORY News | Posted: Jan 26, 2012 1:15 am

[update] Seems to be OK now, but at the time it was definitely down. I noticed it pretty quickly and no one else from Google searches had said anything about it. I figured I must have been one of the only ones to notice that quick. Seems all good now! Thanks to our readers for commenting and letting us know of their success/problems with Facebook! You guys and girls are awesome! :)

 

I just had a text message from my BFF, Tristan, who has informed me Facebook is down. I was typing up some news and thought "yeah, come on". I checked Facebook.com and sure as HELL, it's down.

Before getting into a panic of not being able to update my status, I checked http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com and sure enough I was presented with:

 

It's not just you! http://facebook.com looks down from here.

 

The site loaded up just as I got 3/4 the way through typing up this piece, but is now ultra slow. I'd say it feels like its at 5-percent working capacity right now.

 

I'll update this post as we find information out.

 

Comment to let us know if you're experiencing issues, or if the site is not even loading at all for you.
