The Mystery of Facebook Maintenance

Account Unavailable

Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.

This is what I'm told when I try to login to Facebook. It is not cool. How am I to know the many good things that aren't being posted??? Someone might have answered a question about me using Truths About You, or even sent me a Farmville request! Oh merciful Facebook, end thy maintenance!

In the case of some future maintenance in which a random reader finds themselves wondering wtf is wrong with facebook, I found the following at

"Site Maintenance" usually means that we're making an improvement to the database that your account is stored on. While we're doing this, you will not be able to access your account. In most instances, this maintenance will last only a few hours. Please note:
  • After the maintenance is over, you will still be able to login with the same password.

  • Your profile and account will not be affected by the maintenance.

  • We don't do site maintenance on all accounts at the same time, so it is possible that some of your friends will be able to access the site while your account is unavailable.

  • It is not necessary to contact us about a "Site Maintenance" error.

  • If your maintenance lasts longer than 24 hours, please follow these instructions to clear your browser's cache and cookies.
