Mark Zuckerberg's worth is up, but Facebook is down. After experiencing service outages yesterday related to issues with a third-party network provider, the social-networking site is undergoing additional problems today that the company says are related to latency issues with its API on its developer site.
MG Siegler at TechCrunch weighed in on the Facebook outage:
This is a problem not just because the site is down, but Facebook's omnipresent Like button is also completely down, and so is Connect, and Platform - in other words, the entire Internet (or a good percentage of it) is feeling this pain.
This serves as a major disruption for companies that rely solely on Facebook for business, business users that use the social-networking site to stay in touch with contacts, and enterprises that use the social network for customer service.
