Facebook outage continues in Ottawa

by alec on July 31, 2007

A few minutes ago I sent Ottawa CTV Reporter Paul Brent home empty handed.  Paul and his camera man showed up at my house to do a piece on Facebook, and how it's making the crossover from social to business networking.  We were going to shoot some footage, and he was going to chat with my sons and me about Facebook.  But instead of being able to log in, this is what we got to see:

Back at the CTV studios, apparently they were able to access Facebook. I understand that Scoble and a few others in the valley are back up also.  But here in the Canadian hinterlands of Manotick, Facebook is a definite no-show, and has been for most of the last 14 hours.  Growing pains? Seems doubtful, given how long it has taken them to resolve the issue.

Interesting given that here in the Toronto area (with the highest Facebook density worldwide) I was only out for an hour or so around the noon hour today.

it's still intermittent this morning Jim. I was in for a few minutes, and then got the same message. Something is definitely wrong in Palo Alto.

Strange, I haven’t had any interruptions – that I am aware of. It was a little slow to launch yesterday, but that is it.

Just a few minutes ago I got in, and had got “there are no items in the newsfeed for you”, and “you have no items in your inbox”.

There’s a SERIOUS issue with FB at the moment.

I think it’s a conspiracy against you Alec :) I’m getting in no problems (yesterday and today).

I've tried logging in a hundred times ( I know, I'm having withdrawals) and still to no avail…
Anyone else still having problems?
