Yesterday afternoon would have been a nightmare for anyone who tried to update their status on Facebook as they would have been faced with a “This webpage cannot be displayed” greeting. It seems that this issue was network wide with Smartphone and tablet applications being also affected. Of course, the upside is that because of this people had no alternative but to get on with their work, which must have boosted the economy somewhat.
According to statement from the social network;
“Today we experienced technical difficulties causing the site to be unavailable for a number of users in Europe,”
It finished by saying;
“The issue has been resolved and everyone should now have access to Facebook. We apologise for any inconvenience.”
