Worldwide panic among users as Facebook stops working for some minutes

A few minutes ago, Facebook had a worldwide outage. Users all over the world found it impossible to post anything on their timelines, pages and groups.

Many users started panicking when they saw the following error message (see photo) which blocked users from using Mark Zuckerberg’s platform.

It took a number of minutes for Facebook’s technicians to solve the problem and get Facebook back online.

From our tests, tweets and posts on Google+, it seems that on the Internet Facebook was temporarily unreachable from all over the world for around 30 minutes. It affected other sites such as Socialbakers.
