UPDATE: 6:30 p.m. -- Facebook is now back, according to Down Right Now. "Earlier this afternoon, we experienced a load-balancing issue that prevented some people from accessing Facebook for a brief period of time," Facebook said in a statement to the Huffington Post. "We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100%. We're sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused."
Facebook appears to be down for many people on Friday afternoon. Users are getting an error message when they try to navigate to the site.
