is facebook down today, 7th March 2012?

I can't get on Facebook on my computer nor my phone, and I tried to check the status of the server but it was through the Facebook website so I couldn't...

Update:

it seems to be down in every country, and I'm from Scotland by the way, I doubt it would be down on a global scale all at once just for maintanence, my best bet is Anonymous :P

    The problem is not known yet.

    Have a nice, non-facebook day :).

    I have heard, the coders at Facebook released an update that was not ready yet by mistake and could not get it fixed without having to take the whole site off line. It might also be a trick to see what happens if the site crashes on a world wide scale. To try and value the site at more money. Who know but all leave and join GOOGLE PLUS Facebook has got to big now.

    It seems like Facebook was taken down by Tadjikistan along with 2 other websites because of a critical post about the president Imomali Rahmon

    They seem to have changed to a global load balancing scheme based on DNS five hours ago and those are not responding properly. Some locations are available, but may be a caching issue.

    Other possible reasons like IPv6 misconfiguration seem to be discarded for the moment.

    Here in Switzerland, I'm see both scenarios a responsive and unresponsive one.

    Facebook is offline GLOBALLY. Although facebook can be "pinged" which means sending packets of information to their server which in turn shows the servers are still replying (A good thing).

    Although this doesn't help anyone wishing to access facebook.
