Today users in some countries encountered Facebook server down issue while accessing the service. They came across “Sorry, something went wrong” message while trying to access the site and they started posting messages on Twitter regarding the issue.
Just within mins after the issue started, Facebook restored the service without giving any explanation to the users. Mostly users residing in the Europe and the US were affected by the server issue this time.
If we observe, every month Facebook experiencing server down problems for a few mins in particular regions of the world and restored in a fraction of the time. Sometimes Facebook tests new code or new functionality on an area basis, which indirectly leads to the Facebook server down.
Whatever the region Facebook always works hard to restore the services as early as possible because the site down hurts its business a lot. In last year September Facebook experienced significant server down for an extended period of 50 mins.
