Facebook Suffered “the most severe outage in its history” on Wednesday, Here is What You Might Have Missed at DC Dirty Laundry

I received an email yesterday from the person that is running our Facebook page. I was told that a grand total of ONE of our articles posted to Facebook. I am currently suspended from posting to Facebook (30 days) so I was unaware of the problems. At the end of the day I noticed low traffic numbers and a low number of Facebook social shares so the problem must have been major.

The BBC claims it is/was the worst outage in Facebook history:

Facebook is suffering the most severe outage in its history, with key services rendered unusable for users globally for much of Wednesday.

The last time Facebook had a disruption of this magnitude was in 2008, when the site had 150m users – compared to around 2.3bn monthly users today.

Facebook’s main product, its two messaging apps and image-sharing site Instagram were all affected.

At any rate, I thought I would post our daily articles from Wednesday in this update. But before doing so I would encourage you to sign up for our mailing list. Facebook and the other major social networks will eventually have sites like this totally blocked. So if you want to keep hearing from us, I’d suggest you sign up for our mailing list.
