Facebook down worldwide

Check Facebook's own Down Detector if ya don't believe me. Of course since they helpfully tell you "your internet is down", which I then verified it isn't, at 1st I thought it was Just Me.

Their DNS entries are somehow broken. I can use FB from my phone, however.

Maybe FB is trying to clean out out the stuff that came out on 60 Minutes last night.

You are probably right, but that will never be part of the explanation for the outage.
