Facebook Outage Affected Many Retail Outlets

Late yesterday, Facebook experienced some difficulty that left many users unable to update their statuses or even access their information. Outages reportedly lasted on and off for 3 hours and for those which connections to Facebook through business, this was long enough to cause a bit of a sting.

For retail sites, who rely heavily on connecting with their customers through “likes,”  and have their “like” buttons on their own content site, this meant they may have seen technical errors on their ends as well. While some sites fortunately recognize that a site is struggling and stops trying to connect to it, others do not and this constant searching for a site that is down can lead to decreased site performance.
