MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – No, it wasn’t your computer or your internet connection. Facebook went down for the second time in one week Monday afternoon.
If you were constantly refreshing just to see the dreaded “This webpage is not available,” or “Sorry, something went wrong” message, you were not alone. Twitter was abuzz with countless posts featuring #facebookdown.
Twitter: where we all turn to complain that Facebook is down. #facebookdown

Newsweek.com reports the world’s most popular social media website had an “outage issue” around 3 p.m. Monday. Facebook.com was available for most users about an hour later, but it took even longer for others.
Facebook users were also at a loss September 24, which was the first time within the past week the site was unavailable to their nearly one billion active users.
