Uh oh - users based in the US might be experiencing an outage of Facebook, where the social networking site has been down for patches of US-based users, including Texas, New York and others for nearly two h ours now.




Some parts of the country are still able to access Facebook without a problem, and over here in Australia I'm experiencing no issues whatsoever. Downrightnow has given Facebook's current status as 'Likely Service Disruption', and reports that the social network has been experiencing issues since 20:00 EST.


It's ok - Facebook will be back everyone, you can sit down and relax. Everything should be back to normal in just a couple of hours.
