Facebook account not available

Facebook seems to have a hard time maintaining the infrastructure to support it’s more than 600 millions users. So in recent time people have started facing many irregularities with Facebook. Even I have experienced a few issues on my own. Issues like the online users section shown at the left side of Facebook showing multiple times or chat windows not opening when you click on  user name seems to be quite common. Moreover there are issues like messages disappearing from wall and Facebook group is a matter of concern.

I moderate 2 groups in Facebook and I have seen threads with a lot of response have suddenly disappeared from the

Facebook Groups. I inquired with other members about the issues and some of them told they are able to see and some reported as not available to them. So it seems to be issues related on per account basis.  Contacting Facebook for such things did not yield any result. So I was ignoring that thinking it will be a temporary issue and will be rectified soon. But today an extremely strange thing happened. I was chatting with the members of one of the group when I tried to post a comment to one of my friend’s status message. It did not get posted and I received an error saying not posted and try again. I tried again, but that also did not result in success. I tried refreshing my page and I was surprised to see the following message instead of my Facebook wall:

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

I tried refreshing my page numerous times but that did not work and I was greeted with same message. I was suddenly concerned and thought that Facebook has deleted my account or banned me. I tried to access it with another browser. I put my username and password and huh…instead of logging me in, I was greeted with a slightly different message with option to login with a  different user name and password.

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

This message looked bit relaxing as I became sure by now that my account has not been banned or deleted. And seems like a Facebook issue.

Such incidents are not new to users and Facebook is aware of it. They told to CNET long back about some internal glitch in their server which is preventing users to access their account intermittently.  But as Facebook is growing like anything and many users and enterprise are heavily dependent on Facebook for their brand promotion and connecting with their customers, such downtime will definitely hamper their business. Facebook should take care of such issues by expanding their infrastructure more aggressively. Also they need to publish any anticipated downtime or issues in a publicly available location.

By the time I am writing this, I tried again refreshing browser and Alas I am inside my Facebook profile. So it was definitely a  temporary glitch. If you had a similar experience with Facebook recently, we would love to know about it. So please share it through comment.

  1. Tonnia Switzer says:

    The issue with certain users unable to log onto Facebook is still a MAJOR problem. I have come to the conclusion that I might as well forget about ever accessing my account. It has been so problematic, that it is beyond annoying. Many other users have this problem and there is no way to contact FB. FB has posted pretty much the same message about site maintenance and database problems, but nothing has been resolved.

  2. i m also getting the same message…wht cn i do??? plzz help…my account doent work after 10 pm….it shows the same message…”account unavailable” help me….

    • Lisa boyling says:

      Its been 4 days now that ive been trying to log into facebook. It says either one of two things. Firstly,’ sorry your account is unavailable ‘ or your account is down for site maintainence’. They say it shouldnt it shouldnt be no more than a few hours,and if its been more than 24hours to get in touch with them,i filled in a ‘bugs form,’ and thoufht I was on the road to sorting out the problem. WRONG. Ihave since filled in another bugs form,twice and they have not responded. I wouldnt mind so much but it was there idea,they asked me to change my password as it was thought my account was compromised,and now ive been having nothing but trouble since. I have been tearing my hair out over this,ive screamed and shouted at my phone to no avail. So I am now at a loss to what to do now. Has anyone got any ideas,because its driving me absolutly bonkers.

      • Yes do as I am trying to do, cancel your Facebook account. Can anyone give me information on how to cancel and delete my entire Facebook account. It’s been down for days and I find that it is useless now. Email me if you know how to do it. Thanks.

  3. Paige says:

    Having the same exact problem I have not been able to access my account since before 8:30 pm today. I have been reading about other people who say they haven’t been able to access their accounts in a month I am freaking out a little bit. haha

  4. Tushar says:

    Well, my account went offline this evening. I am scared as **** man. Will I recover my friend list, photos and other stuff ?

  5. I am also getting the message “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.”

    One minute I was on FB and the next minute I couldn’t access anything. Facebook really needs to take care of this issue. It’s extremely frustrating, especially when I’m in the middle of a conversation. Not to mention if someone is using FB as a marketing tool and has a business page. Very poor service, Facebook!!

  6. Resh Marie says:

    This just happened to me a while ago, i was just on my homepage, and there it was!
    you’re account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance :./ i found that was very queer! this is definitely poor infrastructure.

  13. Tommy says:

  14. Simon says:

    I faced the “server maintenance” problem today. Just as I logged in to Google + for the first time. Is this a coincidence or a cause for concern?

  15. noa says:

    same problem…oh my its my first time to encounter this…and i am so worried..:(

  16. Kap says:

    This just happened to me for the first time this morning when I tried to log in. It was working fine last night. Doesn’t work on my iPod either. Mozilla gives me one error, IE gives me the other error as Ajay stated above. Total inconvenience, hope that its back up and running by lunch!

  17. nicole says:

    this just happened to me today. has this ever happened to anyone where they could never access their account again?

  18. sinead says:

    they same problem is happening with me and it never once since i joined facebook did it too me i am entering the same password and email address correctly i also taut i might have been hacked or my account might have been deleted i was thinking of setting up a new account in case it wouldn’t work tomorrow i also logged in to my cousins page and tried to check my wall and it wouldn’t even leave me check it at all and this message keeps popping up Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance.

  19. mike secto'won says:

My fb name is mike secto’won look n u can see I’m still there but I can’t get in .

  20. mike secto'won says:

    Me to I thought I was deleted does anyone know how long this can last??? My Facebook is how I talk to my fam no phone :/

  21. Lolza says:

    YEAH!! ugh im the same mine has been saying that since like 1 and its sooo annoying and im really worried!! how long do you think it might take to get it back??

  22. nidz says:

    its ma birthday tomorow n my fb account is not available.i dunno wat kinda maintenance they’re doing :@ i hope i’ll get access to my account tomorrow to get my b’day wishes 🙁 poor service huhhh

  23. My account has been unavailable due to alleged site maintenance for about 24 hours. Also, My friends can’t see my page – they get an error message that my site is no longer available. Do I need to create a new email account and create a whole new facebook profile, and find all my friends again? Or is there a way to contact Facebook?

  24. @Christine, I also use FB for marketing and I give my ad dollars to FB everyday. It stopped letting me logging in around the same time yesterday as you and still is down. It won’t even let me reset my password. It’s quite frustrating as it is a primary means to communicate with a lot of my customers.

  25. Sharon Lennon says:

    I have been receiving the account temporarily unavailable and site maintenance message for 25 plus hours. How long is this going to take and why can’t Facebook advise us. Pretty poor PR department or maybe they just don’t give a ……. Maybe it’s time for the twins to setup another site for us with the money they won from their lawsuit.

  26. Rich Green says:

    It has been 24 hrs. I cannot log in with desktop. I can with Android but I cannot post. People cannot access my wall. I have not received any email notifications for anything since this started. However, if they are losing paying advertisers over this I’m sure it has become major for them.

  27. Liz says:

    it’s been almost a day for me. I’m getting reeeeally frustrated! I’ve emailed Facebook about the problem and they haven’t gotten back to me yet… I know it hasn’t been deleted because I’m still getting emails about people writing back on email threads but I still can’t log in! I know you’re saying it’s only a temporary problem, but how temporary is it? When will I be able to log in again? I’m so mad this is the first time it’s happened to me and I hope it never does again. Am I more prone to it now that it’s happened to me? Help!!!

  28. Kirsten says:

    Mine has been down for more than 2 hours. I guess they are working on the database that houses my account? I’m hoping it will be up tomorrow. Sent them an email, but I doubt they will get back to me. I wish they would have a help site or chat OFF of Facebook since if your account is not accessible, you can’t even get on their Facebook.com help.

  29. Mary says:

    Having the same problem as of 7 hours ago. I have tried logging on with laptop and phone – neither work. Friends can’t access my wall, etc. I am receiving no notifications. I also have tried resetting my password, to which another error message appears. E-mailed FB help as last-ditch effort, but I am not counting on a response.

    Having something like this happen really makes me think hard about the integrity and security of the data being stored…

  30. Sara says:

    yesterday i was hving the same issue but today morning i was able to log in but after 30 minutes the same issue exist nd displaying the same message………..

  31. HOKU says:

    Yesterday I started receiving this message “”Profile Unavailable Sorry, this profile is not available at the moment. Please try again shortly”” after trying to log in.

    It’s now day 2 and still can not get into my facebook acct.

  32. Wasiq says:

  33. Natasha says:

    I am also having the same problem. Been over 4 hours now. Soooo frustrating!!

  34. mohd mohtashim says:

    i had the same problem today morning
    when i tried to logged in my account iit was also showing the same error that my account is not aailable due to site maintenance
    please tell me is it ok
    can i access my account after few hours i really so shocked to saw that error

  35. Subin says:

    Facing problem with d fb chat.. even though i’m not online it shows me online…….. help plsssssss

  36. Szalsand says:

    It’s been 12 hours now that I cannot access my account. Having read all the comments here I really fear that this is going to be much more until I can log in again. Although I fully understand that the maintenance of servers for such a high number of users can de a daunting task, nevertheless I find the way FB is dealing will all the users very disappointing and frustrating. First they say that the account will be back again in a few hours. Yes, one can say 12 is a few, but normally one would think 3-4, max 5 hrs as few. Second, the first messages upon trying login were this:

    Sorry, something went wrong.

    We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.

    So there was no word about account maintenance, only couple of hours later. Therefore I tried to send a report to FB with an enquiry, but was astonished to learn that it is very difficult. It feels that they don’t want to be contacted by upset users at all. Bug report was prepared by me, but when I tried to send it, I got the same message as above. Very frustrating. I tried to send the report several times with the same result.
    Third, as the communication was unclear, there were no further explanations of any kind, I thought that I might have been banned or my account was deactivated or I don’t know. So I started to find solution in the Help Center just to find out that everything there is over complicated for security reasons, yet still one cannot find the proper answer for a very simple question: why can’t I log in?
    Still as I’am writing this short report to my fellow users I check the accessibility: again the same message as above, no word about site maintenance any more. This is a very disappointing experience for me.

  37. Nina says:

    The same story here. It gives me the same f….hing message. It’s been 4 hours now. anyone of you got you account bach yet or you still waiting?

  38. Mahesh says:

    I am also facing the same problem “site under maintenance” since last night 10pm. Can any one help me to solve this problem…The maintenance of the site is very bad and it causing a lot of disturbance for the users. It really sucks……..

  39. Jaz Cullen says:

    It also happened to me, i would just like to know how long does it last? thank you and can you answer back as soon as possible . thank you.

  40. Justin says:

  42. jacob says:

    I’ve had this issue for almost a week now. If there is ANY possible help for this…PLEASE tell me. I have some very important pages to look administrate.

  43. TerryB says:

    Haven’t been able to acess my account now for over 24 hours. is causing me major problems with my business.

  44. Jane says:

    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.
    What is this all about. I haven’t been able to use FB since yesterday…This is ridiculous. Who do you contact on this problem.

  45. khyree says:

    September 19 – My account has joined the wagon..

    How long does it take for these issues to be solved?

  46. Nompumelelo Ngubo says:

    m having the same problem, i just cant take it anymore…..how long will it take…?

  47. Steve K. says:

    Facebook has been showing that first message when I try logging on. It’s been like that for the last couple of hours now (at least) becuase I was able to access it this morning.

  48. me. says:

    Id appreciate a little more information than “site issues…try again indefinitely as your account may or may not be completely erased.” If its truly site maintenance why is it just certain people seemingly at random? I cant get a better explanation than that? I cant even submit my own inquiry on tbe matter? Facebook is more capable than that despite its millions of users. They have mooooore than enough financial and technical resources to at least come up with a better answer than the handful of (interestingly slightly altered but basically the same) “whoops, kesp trying” messages to the people this happens to. Seems that most people experiencing this have had fairly urgent need of site usage just before this occurs. Hmmph.. Bologna.

  49. Mirul says:

    Account Unavailable

  50. Jayden says:

  51. Kathi says:

    Mine went down approx 9 hours ago..haven’t been able to access anything. The only problem is..I was auto signed in..it won’t let me sign out. When I click on facebook I auto go to the page that says..it is temporaily unavailable….so how is anyone else in my house able to sign on their facebook????????????

  52. RandomStudent says:

    Till now i still cant log in and my friends, they all didnt reply my sms…

    my facebook game daily rewards must all gone… and must start from 1st day again…
    Soooooooooooooo sad…………

    next time can facebook send all of us an email to tell us that when will it maintain?
    it so suddenly and will make all of us miss many things… =(

  53. kate says:

    My Facebook has been down now for nearly 8 hours just like everyone above it says Temporarily unavailable ; please try again in a few minutes i have cleared my cookies and my cache. asks me to log in and then says temporarily unavailable try again in a few hours.
    Its been like 8 Already.
    I promote my business and deal with my customers and orders online, this is a real inconvience for me as i cannot contact any of my customers regarding any orders due for delivery tomorrow.
    So now facebook is costing me alot of money(Revenue!)
    So in the niceist way possible they best hurry up otherwise they can reimburse my revenue for the inconvience.
    They should be prepaired for such things, And should deffinatly have sent an email to inform of what they are planning to do they may not have had so many people emailing asking whats going on.
    ALSO slightly worried as im not recieving anything through my emails regarding facebook?
    I have contacted them twice i got a response the first time which just basically said the same “your account is unavailable”
    please help – Katie (UNITED KINGDOM)

  54. Kim Nguyen says:

    Hi Daniel,
    Thanks for your share. I cannot access to my account since 6pm yesterday. I’m really panic right now because the Facebook message said that the site maintenance and it won’t last after few hours. But right now, I still cannot access to my account.
    I have read that it maybe take more than 8 days to get back to normal, but some said they have to create new account.
    You got luck Daniel (cause you can get back to your account after 2 days)
    What can I do if I still cannot get back to my account? (Facebook has no customer service phone number)

  55. Shawn Coleman says:

    I just hope that you are right about that. I was on fb via mobile while on the job yesterday. And after I finished, I couldn’t log in. It is almost 9:30 am and I still cant get online. FB really needs to implement some sort of phone service for situations like these.

  56. Hope V. says:

    i was just in my FB an hour or so ago and then WHAM i got bumped off and keep getting this message. i am just sick about this. i am actively involved in FB groups and really need to keep in touch with people about some things we’re working on. what do i do if i can’t get back in tomorrow? is there any recourse? has anyone had this happen and never be able to get their account back??

    please help??

      I have been having this problem intermittently since yesterday – now 24 hours…. I hope I wasn’t hacked. Bummer, if I have to set up a new account and find my contacts! :((

  61. kerry says:

    hi got a message via mobile web last night about 10pm saying the same about site maintenance. I’ve tried using mobile app, resetting password and logging in on full site but nothings working. I’m worried how long this will last. I’ve emailed facebook a few times to no avail. Have i lost everything? Even lookin for my name and profile it comes up with account unavailable help! x

  62. William says:

    I have had this same issue all day, approx 8 hours of no facebook.

  63. riya bansal says:

  64. ralph says:

    i had the same two messages, and its been over 4 hours hoe long does this usually last

  65. kandykoatedvagina! says:

    its been 19 hours……some guy up there said facin it for 3 day.and she havent said/post a thing about cummin outta black hole (T~T) were dead….digitally~OMFG!

  66. Jade says:

    I have a personal page and a business page on FB and it’s been down for 24 hrs now. Very upset. At first it said the same thing about being down temporarily due to site maintenance. I call BS on that. What are they doing on one personal account for hrs and hrs? And why are you getting notified in advanced? Today I was finally able to sign in for 10 minutes and I wasn’t able to do much or get updates for the whole down time, then my profile became unavailable, few minutes later my business page too. Can you say inconvenience?
    Right now it says “Your account is currently unavailable due to a site issue. We expect this to be resolved shortly. Please try again in a few minutes.” Which has been the case for the rest of the day and still remains. Can’t sign out, can’t click on help, or contact FB. My friends say they can see my business page, but my personal wall is blank.
    How long will this last???
    I need to access my business account!!!!!!!!! HELP

  67. Oscar says:

    Hi, I have the same problem and I got scared a bit that facebook deleted my account
    I have more than one or two days that I can’t get loggin.
    I am reassured that I’m not alone with this problem
    Sorry if my english is not good I don’t speak english.

  68. marco says:

    i been having this problem now for a whole day. no access on the phone either. Why cant facebook just put out a statement and make everyone feel a bit more comfortable that they are working on this problem. From the looks of it this has been going on for months now and still no statement. I guess when you have over 800 million members the disruption of a few hundreds or thousands users is not really a priority to facebook. What a shame i guess were just a number in a database for them..

  69. vahall says:

    well, i guess FB still has not fixed the problem because it has happened to me today – 10/28/11. Can’t log on to account via laptop or my droid. One time my droid asked me for my password and took me to the menu but still was unable to retrieve my news feed.

  70. Rudy says:

    I agree. I’m sick and tired of the same message always popping up. “Site issue, maintenance, unavailable…yatta yatta” I wish they would just explain or give you a simple answer instead of that b.s. I sent them a message and they replied with basically the same thing everyone else reads. I know now that the site will be up and running for me again but it still really frustrates me that all my friends are using their facebooks and I can’t use mine especially when they think I deactivated my account when I really didn’t. FB should announce these things for people who are part of those servers that do go down. Very unprofessional.

  71. Sara says:

    Around 11:45 last evening I deiced to check my Facebook for one last time before bed. I had checked it the previous house and expected things to go smoothly as usual.
    Then this message popped up on my phone ( I was using FB Moblie at the time) and at first I thought it was my phone so I decided to get up and check it on my desktop.

    Sure enough that same message appeared. When I tried to log out I was STILL greeted bvy the same message.
    When I tried to log out, it wouldn’t let me the message appeared again.

    It is now 8:40 PM, Sunday and I still can’t access my account. I hope it returns back to normal within the next day or two…

    I’ve been a member of FB since March 2010, and this is the first time that this has ever happened to me.

  73. simran says:

    I haven’t been able to access my account for more than a day and I’m feeling quite anxious about it. When my account stopped working I was logged on, so now every time I am typing Facebook in the browser, its taking me to a page which says account is unavailable at the moment. But i can see my profile picture on top. I am not even able to go to the Facebook help page because its not allowing me to do ANYTHING. I think my account has been hacked. So i tried to access help using incognito window and Facebook said that the email address i provided was not registered. I really don’t know whats going on. Its been too long for this “maintenance” work to be going on!

  74. guru says:

    My account is down from the last 28 hrs and FB doesnt even attend to support request mails that I sent, pathetic…

    • simran says:

      My account has been down since yesterday morning and this is making me anxious. This has also made think about sharing information on places like facebook! The worst is facebook just shows this trite message saying please try again in few minutes. They should have the decency to email the users whose accounts are under maintenance.

      • guru says:

        exactly simran, i agree with you, the experience has been devastating, atleast Google was better in terms of services in comparisons to them.. the worst part if the automated msg which gets mailed to me when i report the problem.. hopeless.. I seriously want to move out all my personal stuff off FB as soon as they are up and running..

  75. my facebook account showing I’m getting a “Site Maintenance” error. when it will be resolved

  76. Kim says:

    having the account temporarily unavailable situation today – so far six hours and counting. i do animal rescue. this is putting lives at risk.

  77. Sara says:

    YES! Finally! It’s working for me now!
    I think the reason why is because Facebook was updating thier security features.

    Well this morning i was on facebook and now it sends me The site is down for required maintenance right now, but you should be able to get back on within a few hours. We’re sorry for the inconvenience. that was at 7:00 this morning and then i went back to look at my computer and i was on when i clicked on my account it logged me right back off and every time i put my ****ing password in it says that and when people go to look at my profile it’ll say this page is unavailable so does that mean my facebook was deleted or what

  79. guru says:

    Am on it finally after 30 hrs of downtime.. phew…

  80. mark albert says:

    The message on system down few minutes seem to happen after I tried to tag my wifes picture- FB was giving me problems and soon after I was booted- 5 hours and counting, my friend tried to post on my wall and it would not let him

  81. Val says:

    Well, I haven’t been able to access my Facebook account now for around 4 to 5 hours. I keep getting the same message as others. FB really needs a different approach on this as it just happens out of the blue, no warning whatsoever. This really sucks that I can’t get on FB at all. I guess I’ll go hang out on Google+. At least they don’t lock you out of your account with no warning. I know if Google+ ever gets the games added there that I play on Facebook I’m going to ask all my fellow gamers to go there to play which will cut down drastically on how much time I spend on FB. I’m so sick of FB being messed up in one way or another all the time and I do mean ALL the time. There isn’t a day goes by without something being messed up where my account is concerned.

  82. Kimi says:

    I have recently encountered this. I am glad I had a second account but I don’t have all my friends on it. It is upsetting for me because I am autistic and Facebook is the only way for me to stay in touch with my friends without worrying about seeing them face to face or giving direct responses and becoming completely overwhelmed.

  83. Luna says:

    Mine has been down since 11am and it is now 9pm.

  84. Tammy says:

    Happened to me today and its still not working. Sucks

    • pothy says:

  85. jo says:

  86. Jonathan says:

    This problem happened to me yesterday Nov. 2, 2011. it hasn’t gone away. I’m unable to log in from anywhere (mobile app, mobile site, desktop site, FB Messenger). I use FB mainly to keep in touch w/ my family who lives outside of the country. For now, i’ll stick w/ my twitter, hoping it doesn’t happen w/ them (knocks on wood).

  87. Heather says:

    ugh i have been down with use of my facebook for 24 hrs now 🙁 I feel like a baby without their pacifier…i rely on my fb for things on a daily basis….. so annoyed. Praying it comes back soon and I didnt lose anything!!!

  88. I also have not been able to access since 2:00 yesterday aft. I am new to facebook and this is so bizarre! they need to change their message to say, we don’t have a clue when you will be ableto access

  89. Tracy says:

    I have been down for over 24 hours. You can’t even call Facebook b.c they don’t have a “live person” to talk to. I have talked to so many of my friends and they don’t have any problems with the site.

  90. Kevin says:

    Keeps annoying me, My Email is “kevindoeslol@gmail.com”. If anyone find out a solution, I would really appreciate it if you could mail me. Not sure if its an account problem or the websits problem because all my friends are not having this problem. D:

    Thanks In Advance

  91. ITPanorama says:

    Down for 24 hours now. Sent off an email to FB and got a generic response.

  92. Karen says:

    My fb has been down for about 25 hours. Frustrating. Hopefully it will come back soon. i had just messaged several of my students regarding an event tommorrow. This was my only way of contacting them and now am anxiously awaiting the responses. Should be interesting if I don’t get it back before the event.

  93. oooJASONooo says:

    welp, im relieved to see all yall got this same prob. i was thinkin fb prolly deleted my junk cuz some hater related issues. now seein how many of yall got the same issue, i expect itll work eventually. been 2 days tho. i was gettin hella pissed cuz it wont let me log off. then i found their phone number, but they aint got no phone support. the phone message says to click help on the bottom of any fb page, but that wasnt workin. so then i was like fb a bunch of ******* cuz i couldnt get no help and they lead me down a dead end. never thought it be good to see hella ppl havin a fb prob.

  94. Jonas says:

    I`ve been down for three days now, anybody knows how long this will take??

  95. Oceann says:

    I don’t know what to dooo! I have been denied access from my Facebook account for two days and i’m honestly scared that i’ll never get it back, despite the assurances on the Facebook Help Centre (which is a pile of shit tbh). Facebook is how i contact all my freinds, and my boyfreind doesn’t have a phone so this is my only way of contacting him. It took a lot of time and effort to create my account as well, so Facebook better get thier act together or….and theres the other problem!! How the f*** do we contact these idiots?!?!?!

  96. mari says:

    IT is now three days that i have not been able to get into facebook,same message all the time your account unavailable to site maintanance.Facebook is my communication centre with my children in australia and england.Why is there no telephone number that one can phone,who do you contact.I am a senior citizen and no expert on how to solve the problem.Have been on facebook now three years,first time encountered this problem,i phoned my data centre,they told me that they cant help me with facebook.SO WHAT NOW,DO YOU JUST WAITE????????

  102. tamika says:

    mine has been down for three days now. it started on Friday night around 11 pm and hasn’t been working since. I am very angry because there were no warnings whatsoever.
    Facebook is terrible like this. if it continues to do things like this, I am certain that people will give up on Facebook all together. it is the most peculiar thing. I have family over Facebook, and cannot make contact with them unless I want my phonebill to go high.
    this is disgusting Facebook. you better work soon, it’s unexeptable!

  103. mirela says:

    Happened to me now and its still not working i hate that lol

  104. ralfy says:

    ‘lol’ this and ‘lol’ that aside, it’s just ANOTHER FACEBOOK TACTIC, you STUPID fucks. Think!
    One question: do you have your account “SAFE AND VERIFIED” with a second email address? I bet you all DON’T. Facebook WANTS YOU TO, so that it has more information about you that IT CAN SELL TO COMPANIES.
    Sorry for the caps but people need to wake the FUCK up.

  105. Larinna says:

    The same thing with me. Standard message, still cant access my account. It has been since 5:30 am this morning and it is now 8:30 pm. WTH? Reverting back to my teenage days of long ago….THIS IS LAME!!! Damn! Fix this FB!

    Hello Everyone! I To Have Had Trouble With Facebook Not Letting Me Log Into One Of My Accounts, And Thinking That It Was Banned Because I Couldn’t Get In Was Really Frustrating Me, So After My Numerous Attempts Of Logging In And Getting The Few Minute Maintenance Message Then This Pops Up! Facebook is down for required maintenance right now, but you should be able to get back on within a few hours. In the meantime, read more about why you’re seeing this message. Thanks for your patience as we improve the site.

    I’m getting a “Site Maintenance” error.
    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 won’t be able to access your account. We’re sorry for the inconvenience! This maintenance shouldn’t last more than a few hours.

    A few notes:
    After the maintenance is over, you’ll still be able to log in with the same password
    Your account will not be affected by the maintenance
    We don’t do site maintenance on all accounts at the same time, so it’s possible that your friends will be able to access the site while your account is unavailable. If This Had Been Posted The First Time It Would Have Saved Us All A Lot Of Time! But I’m Still Not Happy Because That Is My Business Account :-/ Hope This Helps!

  113. Joe Tibbetts says:

  121. MMM says:


    Well after logging onto my fb last night as normal, it came up that for security reasons could I type my mobile number into the box and they would send me a code. I did this and received no code, so did it 2 more times. To then get a message saying my profile is temporarily unavailable and to try later. This happened at 5am this morning its now 4pm and still no luck.
    Just wondering if this is happened to anyone else lately? And how long did you have to wait??
    Its very annoying :/

  122. ossin says:

    hi , my accout is temporarly unavailable i can access for a couple of weeks an i m using facebook in mobile, could u help me pliz!!!!!!

  123. MMM says:

    I got mine back on, I just waited about 5 hours and changed the number my code went too. And it worked. Although saying that today 5 days after the first problem- it has done exactly the same thing. And I now have to wait again as it came up (you have tried to resend your code to many times, try later) wtf is going on with facebook!!!!!

  124. Oyonah says:

    Its been 12 hrs since i encountered the same problem, fb maintenance and still i cannot open my account…. Iam afraid that my fb account could not be restored. Pls help.

  125. KaylaMarie says:

    I haven’t been able to get into my account for over 24 hours and reading other posts that say this has happened to people and they have been locked out for months when the message says they will only be offline for a few hours. There is no phone support for Facebook and when I try to go to any help page that has Facebook in the url it take me back to the same “Your Facebook account is currently unavailable” I had my roommate look up what to do under help and it said to send an email from my Facebook account email when I tried I go no reply and then I tried from another email account and they sent me links on Facebook help pages that I cannot access. I am freaking out and don’t know what to do because there is literally no way I can access anything from Facebook at all!

  126. Vicky says:

    I’m facing the same problem as well. I’m kind of impatient . I’ve been waiting since yesterday morning . The “few hours” , I thought it was just gonna be a short while but it’s taking so long . I can’t live without facbook . tsk….

  127. Latrisha says:

    This is what my account is saying. I’ve never had it happen before, will it only take a few hours because I think my FB account has been down most of today (Sunday February 12, 2012) Your account is currently unavailable due to a site issue. We expect this to be resolved shortly. Please try again in a few hours.

  128. Ruth says:

  138. KT says:

    I just got this today, I use FB on my mobile as well.

    What is wierd is that after a few minutes I was able to login from the computer but on my mobile I have had messages like:

    1. Wrong password.
    2. The annoying maintenance message.

    I discovered by trying accessing http://m.facebook.com on my computer, my account is still under maintenance, which is silly because I am logged in and using facebook normally via the normal site.

    Which gives? Facebook says to wait 24hr at least in order to send them a report about this to fix.

  139. Manos says:

    I got this 3 days ago… Although it says it would only be for a few hours I have been trying to log in for 3 days and I am still not able to do so. I have contacted facebook to let them know but have got no responses back.

    The weird thing in my case is that I use the facebook app to log in through my mobile and via the app I have access to my profile, I can see the news feed and exchange messages/chat but I do not get ANY notifications or I cannot upload any photos.

    Has this happened to anyone? Isnt this 3 day delay too much?

    What should I do in this case to resolve this?
    I would be grateful if anyone that has had similar experience could let me know,.

    None of my friends are experiencing this and can access their facebook profiles ok. Friends can access my profile ok, I just can’t log in.

    This is happening to me today and I’ve been trying all day to get in from various devices and I’m still getting the same error. I can’t even find a way to contact Facebook and let them know because I can’t login to Facebook and it appears you can’t access their HELP feature without being logged in. Any advice you can give would be appreciated!!

  147. I don’t even know the way I ended up here, however I thought this publish was good.

    I don’t recognize who you might be however certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger
    when you aren’t already. Cheers!
