It’s the second outage within a week for the social network, and many people are unable to log in and view those critical status messages, Pages and other updates.
These problems don’t tend to last too long, but we’ve asked Facebook for a statement on the situation and will update here when normal service resumes.
Until then, go fly a kite or something.
Update: An intermittent service is coming back for some users but the site still isn’t back to normal. Some users are also still experiencing ‘service unavailable’ errors.
Update 1:06 PM ET: Service now appears to be fully restored. You can bring your kite back in.
