Facebook Down in India

By Sidharth | News

Facebook is down in India.

Something has gone wrong. The world’s largest social networking site is down. This means you won’t be able to access Facebook email or even login to the site. Here’s the error message I get while trying to access Facebook.com on my Mac, Firefox browser:

Server not found.

Firefox can’t find the server at www.facebook.com.

If anyone is able to access the site, let us know.

Update 1: Facebook works just fine when you visit the mobile version of the site at m.facebook.com. I have no clue why Facebook.com is not working on my browser.

Anyone is able to access Facebook right now?

Facebook servers were down in European countries last week because of technical problems.

Update 2: Apparently, Facebook’s server is down.  Even the mobile version of Facebook doesn’t work. My iPhone 4S is able to pick up old news via Facebook app though.

Whenever Facebook is up, you may want to check out our list of Facebook status messages that can help you add wall posts using fake devices.

Update 3: Facebook is back up! It’s afternoon here, and I am able to access both m.facebook and facebook.com just fine. Thanks for the update everyone! 🙂

Facebook is not down in India. It is an Airtel technical problem at the moment. Are you using an Airtel connection? Airtel has confirmed that this is a technical problem and they are working on resolving this.

You can always use a proxy server to hit it from other Domain..

ultrasurf [http://ultrasurf.us/](download and run the client) should do the job ..

It seems only Facebook India is down.
