Monday Facebook Outage Plagues Posters From Around the World


If you're one of our regular Facebook followers, then you may have noticed that we didn't post any updates on our morning Facebook page until 10 am Central Time on October 21st, 2013.

That was because of an outage that kept us from posting photos or links.

Many across the world experienced the outage. According to CBS news, the social media giant experienced an issue while performing system maintenance.

This issue prevented users from posting and updating. and that included us.

During the out-age, we noticed that one of our followers on Twitter, which was working without issues, was curious about the outage.

At 9:06 am “Mandomummy” said that Facebook had been down for a couple of hours.

By 9:45am, we were able to start posting again.

After it was all over, many Facebook users commented on the outage!

Allyson Gilley said that the outage was inconvenient to her trying to catch up on our news, sports and weather!

Jane Burgett said Facebook was acting ”crazy” for her.

On the other hand, Yashica Murry had no service interruptions and Ian Koetting said it was “hard to notice when you sleep past 10!”

The problems seems to have passed, as we have experienced no problems since Monday morning.
