Nope, it's not just you, Facebook is currently experiencing some technical difficulties. Around 6 p.m. PST, the site was merely showing an error page, denying scroll-happy users immediate access to their friend's recent activity, Instagram shares and, yes, possibly even this very post. Feel free to panic as you see fit. Or just go read a book.
We will, of course, update you when we find out more. But how will you know? Twitter, we suppose.
Update: Although it looks like the outage is still going on 40 nightmarish minutes for some, Facebook appears to be online for most users. Carry on folks. Tend to your farms and whatnot.
