Facebook Had Midday Crash, Not the First Time this Month


UPDATE: After about an hour long outage Facebook is back up and running.


Facebook, one of the leading social media giants, has more than just a few users upset today.

The site went down around 3 p.m. and for some has yet to come back up. There are users not be experiencing any issues, particularly if it’s being accessed by mobile devices, while others may be experiencing a slower connection.

This normally wouldn’t be a big deal, but according to Venture Beat this is the third time this month that they’ve had an outage.

Venture Beat reports how Facebook gave no explanation to the September 17 and September 24 outages.

These outages are big advertisement revenue losses for the company, and with more than one in a month with no explanation can be seen as an unreliable source to consumers.
