23rd Jan 2018, Facebook went down for a massive number of users showing a message ” Something went wrong” “go back”.
At first this problem was experienced by mainly users who use facebook on a browser. Then eventually the effects could also be seen on the facebook application and the messenger. It may be update glitch or a server down. This lasted for more than 15 minutes and eventually it got fixed. Even after it got fixed, users experienced a massive slowdown in operations.
This is not the first time fb users experienced such login errors while trying to login into their social media account. Earlier Facebook went down for a large number of users in October 2017. Instagram, which is owned and operated by Facebook, was disrupted as well. Multiple services, like Down Detector and Outage Report, had high numbers of users reporting the issues.
