Facebook down, 7th March, 2012

I haven't been able to access Facebook here in Greece since early this morning. It seems that it's not just Greece - it could be all Europe, it could be global. Looking at the tweets on the 'facebook down' sites is interesting. Most are humorous ('more time for coffee'/maybe we'll get some work done'/'the end of the world is nigh!'), but some people are beginning to voice concerns that this might have been caused by hackers.

  18. Facebook is working, we just cant see him, because something wrong is with DNS - it is the same situation like when you write letter, but postman dont deliver it, just put it in to his pocket and dont take it out. At least, that how I uderstand explanation from smarter people for this. I tried to go there through the hidemyass and it worked, I could log in, but then the page didnt respond.
