Minor outage at Facebook Monday

Some users report poor performance or troubles logging in.

Users were reporting performance and availability issues with Facebook Monday. Some complained on Twitter of slowness and pages that didn't load. Others said that third-party desktop apps that connect to Facebook (such as Digsby) lost their access to the service.

The outage did not appear to be widespread. A spokesperson for Facebook said in an e-mail to CNET:

As a result of a network device failure, a very small percentage of users lost access to Facebook for a short period of time earlier today. The site has now been restored and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
