    Are there seriously no "Facebook is down" threads going on right now? I searched all over, but that's failed me in the past.

    Well, it seems they are having network-related issues, and I was wondering if you all knew more about it?

    This is where I first read about it:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/09/23/facebook-down-users-repor_1_n_736935.html

    And since there's a slight chance this may be the first thread about it, I'm shamelessly going to plug my own little blog post about it (which will be updated if I hear anything about it other than "network issues").

    Thanks, and sorry if this is a duplicate thread! :)

    Please let it be so. Facebook should really die in a fire.

    as big as facebook is, i don't understand why there are so many issues. beyond that, the web interface seems really cheesy and the iphone app is glitchy.

    Would you mind pointing out one major company which doesn't have similiar issues?

    Seems most of those criticism can be said of Google, BB, Apple, Microsoft etc...

    That’s just a comprehensive list of security issues and other things that Facebook has.

    I have my own reasons for hating facebook.

    FaceBook is one of the most useful websites around today. So useful, so easy, i don't see what's wrong?

    The only thing I use Facebook for is uploading photos from my phone. I used Flickr first, but after 200 images they wanted my money.

    I don't know what the limit is for uploading photos to Facebook but I haven't hit it yet! :)

    I believe everyone is entitled to their opinion. If you don't like it, tough, ignore it and move along.

    FaceBook can be useful and it has definitely interesting aspects (I actually do have an account that I check on every now and then) but I fundamentally dislike the way it's promoting self-absorbed-ness and the way its staunch users seem to have completely lost the sense of privacy.
    And despite his spectacular $ 100m charitable donation, I think Zuckenberg zucks.

    :D

    Anyway, I hear from a reliable source that Facebook was down because they switched the servers off due to the cache system was showing the wrong value.

    The almighty weight of the forthcoming Ping integration has brought facebook to its knees :p:D

    I am starting to dislike Facebook altogether.

    I got some invite to a group to vote for some stupid kids video submission for the Kid Cudi contest. But every time I click, it just stays there! I have clicked ignore around 50 times!

    Yes, but making a witty remark to insult people is uncalled for.
