Facebook goes down this morning for both mobile and web users. Facebook was not available in many regions around the world.
The website of Facebook remains unavailable in US, UK, France, Belgium and other European countries. Many Asian countries including India and Africa were also hit by this global outage.
Later on, Facebook returned back online after a "brief but widespread" outage. However, it is not a good thing for such a big social networking website to suffer global outage.
Facebook went offline for almost 30 minutes this morning. The social networking website also went offline for a short time period back in May this year.
In response to this global outage, Facebook emailed a confirmation statement to TechCrunch, accepting that it had suffered a short global outage due to “an issue” earlier this morning. But no such details about the issue have been revealed. And Facebook is now back online 100%.
A Facebook spokesperson said: “Earlier this morning, we experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back 100%. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
