After entering Facebook.com in the address bar, a message appeared - "Sorry, something went wrong. We are working on getting this fixed as soon as we can." Meanwhile, Twitter users had fun at the expense of Facebook. They tweeted FB jokes after the crash.
On the Facebook error page, a 'Go Back' button appeared underneath the message that redirected the user to the previous page or the login page. However, when the user tried to log in again, the same error message appeared, again.
In addition the Web app, the Facebook app for Android and iOS were also unable to load any news feed.
Users took to Twitter to find out why Facebook went offline.
Was your #Facebook down for a time? Panic as friends suddenly in the dark about what Melanie ate for lunch and if Drew had a good holiday.

Okay now apparently Facebook is down again. It's not a bug, I think it's doing last night's NED-AUS game through interpretive dance. — Rohan Joshi (@mojorojo) June 19, 2014
