With the holiday here Facebook and other key social media platforms suffered a major hit today with errors running amuck. Do not feel alone if your pictures are not showing up, or if your ads have taken a hit today from the social media giant they are seeing some massive errors.


The first report came in from Dallas, Texas today around 6:30 am CST of a user unable to see his pictures and from there, millions across the world have experienced issues. This comes in as the 3rd major bug to hit Facebook in recent months. In March our team covered the 3-hour bug Facebook had seen.
