Social media giant Facebook appeared to be having some network service issues that took the entire site offline. Users all over the country took to other social media platforms – such as Twitter – to report a similar error message.
When users visited any Facebook page on the site, they were met with the following error message.
"Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can."
While Facebook does appear to be back online now and functioning normally, there is no official word regarding what has caused the outage. Facebook does have a verified Twitter page, but they haven't mentioned anything about the outage there as of yet.
According to IndyStar, Facebook appeared to be down for nearly half an hour as reports of the outage started to roll in around 1 p.m. EST and users reported being able to access the site again a few minutes before 1:30 p.m.
