Facebook is unavailable due to a ‘site issue’

Facebook suffers a 'site issue'

It seems that an awful lot of people are currently unable to access their Facebook accounts – and we’re one of them.

All attempts to access our accounts for the last ten minutes have been redirected to page bearing this decidedly unfestive message:

Facebook:Your account is currently unavailable due to a site issue. We expect this to be resolved shortly. Please try again in a few minutes

Twitter is currently awash with complaints, and Facebook doesn’t seem to want to explain exactly what this mysterious “site issue” is.

Anyone else getting this? It’s very annoying because we’ve got Christmas photos to post up!
