Facebook on Thursday experienced a global outage that left its over 1.2 billion users, including those in India, unable to access the world’s largest social networking portal.
For about 30 minutes, users logging into the website saw the message: “Sorry something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.” The services were later resumed.
A Facebook spokesperson here said “an issue” prevented some users from posting on Facebook.
“Earlier this morning, we experienced an issue that prevented some users from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly and we are now back to 100 per cent. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused,” he said, without divulging details.
