Facebook Says Some Users Had Brief Website-Loading Delay

Don't Miss Out —
Follow us on:

June 1 (Bloomberg) -- Facebook Inc., owner of the world’s biggest social-networking website, said some users had trouble for a short time yesterday accessing their accounts.

“Some users briefly experienced issues loading the site,” Facebook said in an e-mailed statement about the outage. “The issues have since been resolved and everyone should now have access to Facebook. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

The issue was reported earlier today by Forbes, which said some people started experiencing outages at 7 p.m. EDT, and at 10 p.m. EDT “RIP Facebook” was among the top 10 trending topics on Twitter Inc. Investors have pummeled shares of Facebook since its initial public offering last month, citing concern over growth prospects for the Menlo Park, California-based company.

Facebook rose 5 percent to $29.60 in New York trading yesterday. The company sold shares last month in the IPO at $38 apiece.
