Update 1 1:40PDT: The site is back up for some, if not all, users.
Update 2 1:50PDT: Many users are getting an error message Service Unavailable – DNS Failure. The message is coming from a server at edgesuite.net which is run by Akamai, a provider for many big sites. It looks as if Facebook has changed their DNS to point to this server while they work on the problem.
Just as Mark Zuckerberg appears on Oprah! Conspiracy theories will abound.
Astonishing! Just how this is news. How I’m even bothering to write about it.
So I’ll stop. I feel slightly unclean. As I did after watching ‘Couples Retreat’.
