Facebook went down around 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time Thursday, causing an expected collective freakout on other social media sites like Twitter.
Websites that track status, like CurrentlyDown.com, confirmed that Facebook.com was officially down with a 503 error, and the outage lasted between 10-15 minutes before service returned.
Statistics from CurrentlyDown.com suggested that the issues were primarily experienced in the U.S. and in the U.K. but other countries such as India were showing issues as well.

Facebook did not immediately respond to TheBlaze's request for comment on this outage.
The last outage the site experienced was back in July for 21 minutes, CurrentlyDown.com reported, but Venture Beat noted another outage experienced just earlier this week.
