Facebook confirms site glitches

Some users are having trouble logging on and posting content

Facebook confirmed Monday what some users have been noticing for the past few days: Its site is having problems.

The issues have included disappearing content, difficulties logging on, being unable to view profiles, and error messages when posting content.

"We are working to resolve these issues as soon as possible," Facebook said in a brief message at its Help Center.

The problems resulted from internal issues rather than a hacking incident like the one that affected Twitter, Facebook and some other sites early last month.

"We started experiencing issues this morning because of database and caching problems. We have a team of engineers working to restore the fast and reliable experience users have come to expect from Facebook," the company said in a statement sent via e-mail.

Last week Facebook said its membership had passed 300 million, and that the company became cash-flow positive during the last quarter, something it hadn't expected to achieve until next year.

As its user base continues to grow, Facebook faces "fun and important challenges" like making its site perform faster and more efficiently, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a blog post.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
