Facebook appeared to have gone down for a wide number of users across the globe on Thursday.

Facebook user complaints were seen on Twitter for about 30 minutes.

Users could not log in to the social networking site. On logging in to Facebook.com earlier, a message appeared that read:

“Sorry, something went wrong. We are working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.”

There is a “Go Back” button underneath this message that redirects users to the log in page, but when we tried to log in again it showed the same message.

The problem was not limited to the web app, even the Facebook app for Android was unable to load news feed.

According to SLCERT Sri Lanka, the error might have occurred due to a large amount of traffic to the server .

Information Security Engineer of SLCERT Sri Lanka, Rohana Palliyaguru speaking to Newsfirst stated that Twitter has also experienced this error  in the past.
