Breaking: Facebook Down? Site Currently Unavailable For Some Users

Facebook has been acting weirdly since this morning and it looks as if it is currently unavailable and even down for some users altogether. A small fraction of its 750 million users are reporting that the site has been available since early this morning.

While some of us in the office could access Facebook, others got the message "Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience," or "Account Temporarily Unavailable: Your account is currently unavailable due to a site issue. We expect this to be resolved shortly. Please try again in a few minutes."

When trying to refresh a Facebook page that was available a few minutes before. Interestingly, you were able to access the options from the navigation bar and you would still be logged in.

Users from all over the world have been reporting over the past few hours, on Twitter and other social networks, that Facebook has been erratic. The glitch comes less than 24 hours after Facebook and Skype teamed up to deliver the first mainstream in-browser video conferencing service, one that brings together two online giants with a combined user base of more than 1.3 billion.
