    Mostly back up now, but some newer comments are randomly disappearing. I would guess it may be several hours before it's totally stable again.

    Facebook has the worst functionality and most bugs of any major app/software I've used. It's time they're replaced with something better.

    Agreed. Totally unsuited for proper threaded discussion with quoting and the searchability within facebook is ass (not to mention being virtually unsearchable from the Internet at-large).

    The forum software platforms such as the one used by Philadelphia Speaks are an excellent base to build on. Too bad facebook has siphoned off almost all of the users of most such forums. I've seen that unfortunate trend accelerate in the past five years.

    Facebook is broken in Safari web browser again since late last evening. Can see posts, but cannot see nor add comments. Also FB Messenger is blank. Works ok in Chrome browser. Multiple reports of the issue on downdetector.com.

    I'm not having a problem at home, Jayfar. Works fine in Safari. Comments are still stupid but you can't fix that.

    It was fixed by mid-afternoon for me, although some users were still reporting issues. Every once in a while facebook deploys a buggy update to their software and then later rolls it back or fixes it, after they receive a ton of complaints.

    Looks like the outage is finally coming to an end after over 10 hours — probably the longest in the history of facebook. Some people are still reporting fb problems in downdetector's disqus comments though.

    Note that it wasn't totally down for all users for the duration, but posting and commenting failed for most users in the first several hours, followed by limited and sporadic functionality during the latter half of the outage event.

    ...and back UP again at 8:55am EDT. Approx duration of outage was 2 hours and 20 minutes for most users, although some are still reporting down.

    I often try to click on comments of comments and then completely disappear. That and I often see replies to someone in the comments but they deleted their comment so I cannot see their post.

    Facebook sucks. Even in neighborhood groups there's a certain kind of nastiness. Amazing what people post with their real names.
