Facebook is down, at least for some of its users. Reports have been trickling in to our inboxes and via Twitter for the last half hour or so.
According to Facebook (Facebook), the issue is with a “third party networking provider” that is causing some users to have problems connecting to Facebook.
“We are experiencing an issue with a third party networking provider that is causing problems for some people trying to connect to Facebook,” the company told Mashable (Mashable) in a statement. “We are in contact with this provider in order to explore what can be done to resolve the issue. In the meantime, we are working on deploying changes to bypass the affected connections.”
It looks like Facebook is on the case, but because it’s an issue with a third party, it could be some time until full Facebook connectivity is restored.
