How many times have you had an issue logging onto or using the Facebook platform? If you’re at the office, it’s usually easiest to yell to your co-worker, “Hey, Karen! Are you having issues with Facebook?” However, many of us are part of a single-person or small marketing team, and may not have anyone else to consult with.

Below are some helpful hints to tell you whether or not Facebook is experiencing issues.

This is a page hosted by Facebook and is part of their Developers platform. Depending on what the issue is, it may or may not be reported here.

This page, also hosted by Facebook, tells you if Ad Creation/Editing, Ad Delivery, and/or Ad Reporting are working correctly.

When there’s an issue with almost anything, people love to take to Twitter to complain. In cases like this, it’s to our benefit! Simply search for #FacebookDown and sort results by “Latest.” Double check dates or timestamps to make sure the latest tweets are current.


A handful of third-party sites monitor real-time user reports and announcements to detect issues or outages. You can also submit your own issues here and add to the relevancy of their tracking.

Is It Down Right Now?

If you are receiving a specific error message from Facebook, which means they are aware that something is wrong and are working on it.

If you cannot find any issues, outages, or error messages related to what you are personally experiencing, there are a few other things you may want to try:

  • Hard refresh your browser or app
  • Clear your browser cache or cookies
  • Restart your computer, tablet or phone
  • Contacting Facebook Customer Service
  • Wait a few hours and try again
