When I accessed Facebook page, I noticed that it has the Login and Password fields missing on top. It just displays the Sign Up form as shown below:
Tried refreshing this page twice, but still displayed the same screen. As I am noticing such behavior for the first time, I thought of taking a screenshot and sharing it on my blog. The 3rd time when I performed refresh, it showed me the Login controls (Email/Phone and Password). But when I tried to login, it showed me error message – “Facebook Will Be Back Soon – Facebook is down for required maintenance right now, but you should be able to get back on within a few minutes. In the meantime, read more about why you’re seeing this message. Thanks for your patience as we improve the site.”
So the story is that Facebook is under maintenance (15-Feb-2013 08:25am IST). I do understand that every system needs maintenance, but why did Facebook didn’t mention the maintenance window detail on their Home Page!
