Yesterday proved to be a not so good day for some Facebook users in some areas who had difficulty logging in the website—Facebook was down yet again.

Facebook gave a statement that the difficulty was caused by a third party networking provider, as of Wednesday. The issue caused users to have difficulty logging in or if they managed to get in the site, the interface ran so slow. Facebook released a statement that they’ve been working on the site’s problems to get back to normal operations. Surely, the users were not so happy about it, as the web was being flooded with complaints, especially Twitter.

Just a few months ago, Facebook users who had set their account’s default language into Spanish experienced weird and quite offensive welcomes (in a not so welcoming way) of words and phrases. But this incident is not to be taken as connected with the latest problem Facebook was faced with.

Moreover, there are still no evidences that Facebook was hacked, and if passwords and personal information of users were taken away during the process (or at least Facebook has not yet claimed such unfortunate event). As for the company, it has already tweeted that they were already able to fix the tech problems, so all users could now expect to have a hassle-free “facebooking” time.
