Facebook: Service Unavailable

Posted by Rahul Bharadwaj | Posted in IT Industry, Review, Web | Posted on 24-09-2010

Today, while I was trying to access by facebook account (as usual) it threw an error: Serice Unavailable (find the screenshot below)

Later, just before it finally recovered:

This was the longest downtime that I have ever experienced with facebook, it was down in India for over 30 minutes.

There are quite a few things that come to my mind in this distressed situation:

  • Is the downtime due to server overload or outrage?
  • Has facebook neared it’s capacity with 500 million user?
  • Are they making another revamp (for good)
  • Has Google bought facebook? :)
  • Wonder how this might have affected teenagers’ suicide rate.
  • As Facebook is down, would Twitter be able to handle the extra load (do not worry about MySpace, no one goes there)
  • Next day headlines could be, valuation of Facebook falls from 33,000,000,000 USD to 33,000,000 USD

What do you people have to say about it? Let’s see if facebook can “face” it
