Mild outages poking Facebook?

Access to the site has been going in and out for several users across the U.S., CNET News has noted. The site has not confirmed outages.

A number of us at CNET News noticed that Facebook was having some outage issues on Monday afternoon, delivering "connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" messages to members of our editorial staff in New York, Boston, and San Francisco.

The off-and-on outages would make the social network available to some while inaccessible to others, and sometimes lasted for a few minutes before coming back. Facebook has not yet confirmed the presence of outages, but a company spokeswoman said via e-mail that she was looking into it. Meanwhile, connections appear to have been restored for most of us who noticed outages.

If you've been having issues accessing Facebook today, please drop us a line in the comments section.
