Is Facebook down? Status on problems

Is Facebook down today? When there is problems, millions around the world know about it and this is due to the fact that this social network has over one billion mobile users alone. They login while at home and on the move, so the most common Facebook problems involve trying to sign-in on computers and mobile devices, issues with uploading pictures, blank white pages, or a total blackout when Facebook is down from time-to-time.


The newsfeed and timeline can also receive glitches with no information being display occasionally. There’s help with an online support section, feedback on Twitter and their own website. You can report problems to these sections and check the official online Facebook status today on the right of this page, or leave updates with your problems in the comments below.

If an outage is taking place, or Facebook is not working correctly, then status updates will be left by Down Today readers below. Join in with your own feedback, and spot patterns around the globe.

    Facebook is working ok on Android, Safari and Firefox but it’s all over the place on Chrome. Photos ‘jumping’, pages keep ‘rejigging’ and wall not refreshing. Everything else on Chrome is working so it’s only FB! I use Chrome as default so it’s a pest! Anyone else?

  • chris VN

    3 / 08 /2017, no fb in Vietnam, tried Chrome with my usual account, and Firefox with another account, still nothing, Smartphone also has nothing but ” waiting for network “.

  • Suzi Jarvis

    FB been down all day..just white page; tried on desk computer, tablet and phone..does anyone know what the problem is?

  • Keith Towers

    Facebook is an utter disaster here on the IOW. Slow, often chrome runs out of memory for the page, and freeze-ups. Facebook has become too big for its boots me thinks and needs to trim down. Either that or install servers that can handle the load. Too many mobile users on the hoof I think, with over a billion trying to do their thing 24/7. Time for a clean up me thinks.

  • Martin

    Can’t get into facebook using an Ipad at the moment
    Does anyone know what the problem is?

  • Alexa Schoolar

    nothing on my newsfeed (i’m on a desktop) just plain white boxes then scroll down and there’s a welcome message. So can’t see anyone’s status’s, photos, etc. My Timeline loads up fine though, and I can send status’s and receive notifications. Very odd.

  • Bonnie Gentile

    FB won’t load – June 12, 2017. Log in page loads after cookie delete, but then white screen. Tried all of the usual deletes of plug-ins, etc, reinstalled Flash and work-arounds (feels like year 2000). Has to be on FB’s end – FF, Chrome, Safari, IE, all return the white screen. App on Android/iPad works fine, just not any browser on PC or iPad.

    My game war and order which requires you to bind it to Facebook will not allow me to log in using face book. It redirects me to Facebook but when I try to log in I get a error message. It is ten type of game where you must be on every day or I will get attacked and zeroed. I have spent ££££ on this game and if I get zeroed I will lose it all.
