First Gmail and then Facebook servers go down today leaving millions frustrated
Facebook appeared to be down for many users in the past hour or so with many taking to Twitter to complain that they could not access the site.

When YourGadgetGuide tried to access Facebook from the UK 30 minutes ago the servers did not appear to be responding although in the last few minutes it has come back online.

Service monitoring site DownRightNow reported that many of its users had reported Facebook as being offline although it is unclear what caused the problem.


Facebook later explained that the site outage was due to some work they were doing on the site’s DNS servers.

It said:

“Earlier today we made a change to our DNS infrastructure and that change resulted in some people being temporarily unable to reach the site. We detected and resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100 percent. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
