Facebook went offline for about half an hour this morning, leading to horrified gasps from around the Internet. This is a record outage for the social network, which hasn’t struggled with service issues before despite having a user base of 1.28 billion.

According to Gizmodo, the outage affected the US, Europe and parts of Asia as well as its developer platform.

Facebook has yet to issue a statement on what went wrong, beyond an error message posted on the site saying “somethng went wrong”. Many users took to complaining about the social network’s downtime on rival Twitter.

Yesterday, Facebook announced a self-deleting message app, Slingshot, a competitor for Snapchat. It’s unlikely the two events are related.
