Facebook suffers apparent downtime, forced logouts

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED)  – If you found yourself suddenly logged out of Facebook on Friday, September 28, you're not alone.

Facebook has reportedly been suffering from some intermittent downtime, though it appears the service hasn't been formally announcing any interruptions on its major communication channels.

The last reported resolved downtime Facebook had on status monitoring services was on September 26.

DownDetector.com reports Facebook was having issues at around 10 am on Friday with 105 reports of people having trouble with the social network. More than half the reported issues was tagged as a login problem, while 33% tagged it as a blackout of the site.

Based on social media and DownDetector reports, users are getting forcibly logged off their accounts and asked to sign in again. In some cases users are repeatedly logged off their accounts.

While DownDetector and similar sites say there are no problems with accessing the site, DownDetector's live outage map points to some remaining issues in the Philippines, Australia, Japan, the western and eastern portions of USA, and portions of Europe, South America, as well as a small part of western Africa.  – Rappler.com
