Facebook Blames Networking Provider for Downtime

You may have noticed within the last hour that you couldn’t load your Facebook page.  According to facebook, there is a “third party networking provider” that is causing some accounts to have issues connecting to Facebook.

Facebook has released a statement stating, “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 seems as if Facebook is being diligent in handling the issue, but because it’s an issue with a third party, it might be a while until you are able to load Facebook again.
