extra extra.... read all about it!

For the second day in a row, Facebook users reported problems logging into one of the world's most-popular social media websites.

Users reported problems logging onto the site around 2 p.m. central. Access to the site using a wireless device also did not work.

By 3 p.m., was not loading at all.

At 3:15 p.m., Facebook sent this message out on its Twitter account: "Facebook may be slow or unavailable for some people because of site issues. We're working to fix this quickly."

Users had problems accessing Facebook around 1 p.m. Wednesday. Google searches and "tweets" from Twitter accounts said users were unable to log onto from their computers or wireless devices. Some Facebook users said they were able to log onto the site, but service was slow.

Around 2:15 p.m. Wednesday Facebook posted: "We are experiencing an issue with a third-party networking provider that is making it difficult for some of you to connect to Facebook. We are in contact with this provider and working to fix the issue as soon as possible."

Facebook appeared to be working again by 3 p.m. Wednesday, though some people said the site was loading slowly. The company sent this message out on their Twitter account around 7 p.m. Wednesday night: "We've fixed the issue with a third-party networking provider, and anyone impacted should be able to access Facebook normally."

It's unknown what is causing Thursday's problems.

(I wonder how many folks are having a meltdown?) *giggle* Don't you find it strange that Facebook has a Twitter account) :)
