Is Facebook down? Users were met with an error message from the social media giant when trying to access their profiles.
Facebook, the the most popular social media platform in the world, gave some of their users an unexpected surprise. Upon logging into their account, many were met with an error message from the website that said:
“Sorry something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.”
While the problem only lasted about an hour for most, Facebook has not yet explained what caused the outage on their site. However, the site seems to be functioning normally as of 3 p.m. PST.
Many Facebook users took to Twitter to express their concerns over the error message:
Facebook is down; I’m expecting strangers with mutual acquaintances to start handing me invites to a comedy puppet show any minute now

It’s unsure at this time how the Facebook website crashed. While it may very well be server updates, rumors have been circulating that the social media giant may have had a security breach.
