Network Issues Affect Facebook Access in UK – September 10, 2009

Numerous downrightnow and Twitter users in the UK are reporting problems accessing Facebook today.  Users with Virgin Media Internet service seem to be particularly affected.

Facebook Status History as of 2:45pm ET (7:45pm BST)

We haven’t seen any official acknowledgements from Facebook or Virgin Media, but as always, keep an eye on our Facebook service status page for the latest status information.

As far as we can tell, today’s Facebook issues aren’t affecting a large number of users outside the UK.

Update: Twitter user @ollieparsley found Virgin Media’s official announcement of today’s network trouble.
