Users quickly turned to another social network to discuss the untimely outage:

The tweets continued to pour in -- at a rate of dozens per minute if the Twitter search results are any indication -- as users searched for jokes and/or salvation.

As of this writing, DownDetector.com had more than 900 reports of Facebook users who were encountering problems Friday afternoon. Ironically, another outage detection site, downrightnow.com/facebook, seemed to be experiencing problems of its own.

In June, another massive Facebook outage kept millions of people from using the service.

Disclosure: At the time of this writing, Louis Bedigian had no position in the equities mentioned in this report.
