It’s September 5, 2015 and my Facebook page has been a white screen for 3 days. Of course I did all the usual things to try and resolve the issue which included, rebooting, clearing cache and deleting temporary files, using different browsers, trying to login from other computers etc. No Go…
Next step – Google – “Is Facebook Down”. Surely that would give me a clue to what is going on… I ran across several websites that monitor site outages and NONE were reporting issues with Facebook however, the comment section on the site https://downdetector.com/status/facebook/map/ told a different story. I was somewhat relieved that I was not the only one the FBI was targeting and censoring.. (That was a joke-sort of). Apparently there is a global outage that is not being reported by anyone… I mean NO ONE..
That’s why I decided to write this post. Hopefully this will ring up on google searches and the word will get out so we can get an answer. With all the weird things scheduled to happen this month (see my post about September 2015) this strikes me as quite peculiar. The fact this is not being reported is very odd indeed.
If anyone has a clue to what is going on, let me know and I will update the site. In the mean time, I will do the same.As a side note, it’s been quite pleasurable getting caught up on other things instead of wasting time on Facebook.
Have a great weekend folks.
UPDATE 9/7/15 – Still down and nothing being reported by Facebook.. Very Odd. On a side note, my wife can get into her page with no problem so not sure the criteria of the outage is…
UPDATE 9/8/2015 – Still unable to get on FB on my laptop however, after reinstalling FB app on my Samsung, I am able to login to Facebook and chat etc. It’s a start I guess.
UPDATE 9/11/2015 – See Comments below for Updated Comments from my readers.
UPDATE 9/18/2015 – CBS reported that Facebook went down for 20 minutes on Thursday the 17th. Here’s the link to the article http://www.cnbc.com/2015/09/17/facebook-website-briefly-goes-down.html. I sent the author the following message on Twitter, :
Hello. I am the Admin for http://VicturusLibertas.Com . I saw your report on Facebook being down. This is a much bigger problem than is being reported. Many thousands have been without FB for 2 weeks now. They, like myself have been experiencing the “White Page of death” meaning that when you login to FB, you get a blank white screen. We have tried to get an answer to what the issue id to no avail. They are not even acknowledging the issue even though thousands are complaining about the same exact issue. Please see my blog as well as https://downdetector.com/status/facebook and http://victuruslibertas.com/2015/09/is-facebook-down-mine-is-and-many-others-is-too/ … .. Please see if you can help us out.. I find it very odd this is not being reported. It is a much wider and deeper problem than what you reported yesterday.
Is Facebook Down ?
