Facebook blackout stuns the world

By James Watkins

Yesterday, access to the world’s most popular social networking site, Facebook, was suspended globally. At the time of going to press, the reason for this blackout had not been announced.

When trying to access the Facebook webpage, users across the world were greeted with the message “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.”

The blackout started at roughly 4 p.m. (Ulaanbaatar Time) on June 19 and lasted roughly 25 minutes.
