Facebook Down for Many Users – Status Updates, Likes Not Working

October 21, 2013

Facebook is down

Many Facebook users are encountering problems this morning doing simple things on the social network.

While they can access the site and view profiles and news feeds properly, any additional interaction results in an error message, such as when trying to “like” a photo or a status, or leave a comment.

Facebook’s engineering team is aware of the issue, and has issued the following response:

“We are aware that some people are having problems posting to Facebook and we’re looking into it.”

Users are reporting problems both with the desktop version of the site as well as with Facebook’s mobile applications.

The network has not identified a time of resolution for the issue.
