Facebook servers go down after stock rises

Facebook users worldwide were unable to access the popular social-networking website on their computers after it went down for almost two hours early this morning.

Outages were reported by Users from countries such the United States, India and Egypt, as well as readers from Singapore.

Other readers have said that loading the website was very slow.

Even mobile devices were not spared as some users on iOS and Android devices using the mobile app reported being affected by the outage. Other users were able to access Facebook using the app while being unable to access it on their computers.

This outage comes just a few hours after Facebook's stock rose five per cent after three days of losses, marking another disappointing day for the online service with over 900 million users.

The Facebook servers have since come back up for some users, but many others are still reporting disruptions. There is currently no explanation as to what had happened.
