Facebook: Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance.

I hope that this is just a normal site maintenance. Oh, Facebook, don’t disable my account like Robert Scoble. (Luckily he managed to reinstate it back!) Anyone having this kind of error message?

    I get this all the time these days. Facebook is the worst performing social networking site.

    Take a look at http://www.watchmouse.com/en/SPI/2008/performance_social_networking_sites.php

    Phew. I just had the same problem a few minutes ago. I then did a google search and found reports on vanishing profiles and hackers and stuff. Panic!

    It seems to be working fine now though.

  3. Alan on May 20th, 2008 4:53 am

    How long does the “Site Maintenance last??? My account has disappeared for 3 days!!!

  4. cathy on May 29th, 2008 2:04 pm

    I also have this same problem.It happened for nearly a week. At the very beginning, just occur one to two times per day, but I cannot login today. Even when I successfully login, just few minutes, it automatically log out and ask me to sign up. Then appear the message. Don’t know what happened.

    My account has been unavailable for a few hours due to site maintenance, but I am able to log in and go to the home page. I just can’t view my profile and it is really annoying.

  6. Ab on August 25th, 2008 12:04 pm

    I’ve had the ‘site maintenance’ message show up almost every evening for the past week when I try to sign on. What’s the deal?

  7. Drew Patwardhan on September 5th, 2008 9:40 pm

    Starting to hate facebook now. I get this all the freakin time

  8. An on September 11th, 2008 7:33 am

    Im having same problem!
    Firstly, it said «maintenance», then I can log in but stuck at the home page. Oh well, Im trying to create another account, but still doesnt work. All of my friends have facebook working normally. Oh well, if the problem still existed in a week, I will quit using facebook for sure.
    Time to concentrate at studying :)

  9. Wonton on November 4th, 2008 1:18 pm

    I’m getting the same problem.
    Fucking starting to get annoyed.
    Honestly, they need to fix this problem.

  10. Anna on November 10th, 2008 10:48 pm

    The scary thing about this is…I can’t log into MY account. But I have another account that I made a while ago for my sister and she never uses it, and it’s logging into her’s just fine. And when I try to visit my profile from her account, it’s blocked! Did I do something to make facebook mad at me or something??? They took off two of my personal videos recently because I put music in the background that was apparently copyrighted, and now I’m afraid they’re freezing my account because of it!

  11. Amina on December 4th, 2008 5:14 pm


  12. anon on December 12th, 2008 5:19 pm

    me too, cant get in, some people say if u follow a link from your facebook emails then you may get into ur account bt this ddnt work for me, worth a try though.

  13. Violet Yinusa on December 16th, 2008 4:25 pm

    I am having the same problem keeps saying this, “Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance”….so what is going on???? I hate that!

  14. Violet Yinusa on December 16th, 2008 4:26 pm

    I haven’t been able to log in more than a few hours….now going on for half a day! SUCKS! First time that I ever had this problem!

  15. Martin on December 17th, 2008 5:47 am

    I get the same message, but I can log in from my fone just fine…
    Maintenance is fine, but I believe they are telling porkies!!

  16. Kim on December 18th, 2008 11:26 pm

    I’m getting the message now too, doing exactly as described above. “site maintenance” – I can get in for a quick view of my page, but cannot click on anything without it kicking me out. Does the problem eventually resolve itself? Or do I need to do something?

  17. miranda on December 19th, 2008 5:44 am

    I am having the same problem right now. Is there something wrong with my account? Does anyone know if, when it does that, if it is currently disabling your account, or what? I really need to know! I’m getting so frustrated!!!!!

  18. Wyn on December 19th, 2008 8:53 am

    I’m getting it too, I hope my account doesn’t disappear. How the hell do I contact them to sort it out?

  19. here too on December 22nd, 2008 1:56 am

    Been happening to me as well. It’s been 4 hours. I can log in to my hubbys account just fine, why mine? There is no way to contact FB, is there?

  20. _kYe_ on December 24th, 2008 12:45 am

    happens to me all the time. how do they choose which acocunts to do work on, surely its not everybodys ? is it just at random or through the list of IP’s that browse to the domain ?

  21. jackie on December 26th, 2008 12:54 am

    ok what the hell. its my birthday and now the stupid maintenence thing is going on for me. i tried going on my friends and it was fine and she tried to write on my wall but my whole page is blocked! it was working fine all morning now its not working at all. this better not last long.

  22. john miller on January 9th, 2009 11:34 am

    this is bullshit my facebook is nto working

  23. Chris on January 19th, 2009 12:04 am

    Facebook did this to me today and it logged in but it said I had notifications and requests but when I clicked to veiw it nothing appeared same with my wall posts!!!!

  24. Barry on January 19th, 2009 2:46 am

    Same thing as Chris is saying, today, jan 18. never seen this before…

  25. fasdfasd on January 19th, 2009 3:38 am

    even if facebook does this crap no one is going to stop using it you know why becuase its so dam popular it has so many features it like the website for procrastination. Thats why most people might just yell about their issues..but right after they post a thread here there gona go back to facebook and try to log in and they will try and try everyday till they get it..its way to addicting.

  26. Brad on January 19th, 2009 4:13 am

    I got this message on Firefox. Tried logging on through IE and it worked fine. Went back to Firefox, and got the same message. Stupid!

  27. John Beagrie on January 19th, 2009 5:23 am

    Try to log into my account yet it claims its unavailable due to site maintenence. Compelte bullshit as my wife can log into her account no problem

  28. moma on January 19th, 2009 5:36 am

    i hate this!!!!it happens so often and i’ve got two notifications saying that im friends with two people. the thing is,i’ve never sent a request for these two people to be my friends…i have no clue who they are!!!

  29. papimich on January 20th, 2009 11:56 am

    My facebook page was working earlier, but now I can’t even sign on due to this site maintenance crap. There’s no site maintenance going on if my spouse can get on. WTF? I could just scream! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

  30. saba javahery on January 21st, 2009 3:26 pm

    i run all my promoting through this site and it is killing me AND MY WALLET! help me please!!!

  31. things in books on January 26th, 2009 6:18 am

    yep, I keep having the same thing, and as with Anna, when I log in via another account and try to view my own profile, it’s blocked. This is major suckage facebook! Major!

  32. johnny on January 26th, 2009 1:40 pm

    DAM FUCK FACEBOOK this is happening to me too!! wierd thing is that im so pissed over this stupid network site… sigh.. how dependent are we of such pointless website… but i still want to log in :( hahaha

  33. MJ on January 27th, 2009 8:24 am

    Same thing here. The site takes forever and freezes a lot. I get the same message posted above at times. Then once I get in, it takes forever to comment or post. Sometimes it ever reverts back t the previous day’s news feed! I think facebook is having major issues that no one is admitting.

  34. TheMustardKing on January 27th, 2009 9:36 am

    I’ve noticed this as of lately: more account inaccessible events and total facebook slowdown progressing since the fall. I have a sneaking suspicion it might have something to do with it being integrated with Microsoft’s something-or-other now. Just a tad ridiculous, if you ask me. Now, I can survive without facebook for a while, but for people who use it as part of a livelihood or even the people that advertise (yeah, one of the few times I feel bad for advertisers) are getting screwed over because of people not being able to access their stuff.

  35. Silhouette on January 27th, 2009 9:43 pm

    Past few days I’ve been getting it all the time!! It got me a tad paranoid as I left a number of comments over Gaza recently…

    I’m somewhat relieved that I’m not the only one; but it begs the question, what the hell is going on? Sort it out FB!

    Anyway, as someone above had said: time to concentrate on studying!

  36. Haylee on January 28th, 2009 12:35 am

    I have been getting this error message ALL day. I dont actually know how i have survived without facebook in work haha.

  37. BarbBarbBarb on January 28th, 2009 12:38 am

    I have the same problem with Facebook login. The “Site maintenance” message appears to me almost 16h. I hate it!!!

  38. Tina on January 28th, 2009 4:37 am

    I’ve had this goddamn message since i got up at 10am this morning…it is now 8.37pm and it still not sorted, i am getting so angry and fustrated…they need to sort it before they lose users…

  39. esseult on January 28th, 2009 4:39 am

    I’ve started getting the same message as well. Thing is I am getting it on MY computer, but when I go upstairs and log on on my mother’s computer, no prob….

  40. WTF on January 28th, 2009 5:02 am

    I started to get this message that my account was unavailable as well but when I tried to log on again it usually worked. Now I can’t log on at all and my friends can’t see my profile because it’s blocked. There are no reasons behind it and it f**** pisses me off.
    Does anyone has any reply / answer / reason from Faceook as to why the h*** it doesn’t work????

  41. timsdd on January 28th, 2009 8:26 am

    This blows, mine has been inaccessible ALL DAMN DAY


    Not to mention like 2 other times in the past couple of days!

    Mafia Wars is not going to play itself! :/

  42. suspicious on January 29th, 2009 3:24 am

    I’m wondering if the government has been viewing our accounts. What are everyones political leanings? and is anyone involved in any activities the government might not like? I don’t think its that wild of an idea.

  43. kamal on January 29th, 2009 3:59 am
  44. Al on January 29th, 2009 4:52 am

    It’s been happening all morning for me too. Driving me crazy!!! I’ve been a member since the beginning (like 5 years or something?) and this is the first time it’s happened. SO FRUSTRATING!

  45. Marsha on February 11th, 2009 6:15 pm

    This is just rediculous,it should be unavailable to no one if a site maintenance is being done.I am experiencing the same problem at this moment and its a joke.First time its happenened to me.

  46. christine hills on February 11th, 2009 7:54 pm

    I have not been able to log on since 8.30,it said a few hours,how long does that mean!Have got important messages to answer.I am so FRUSTRATED!!!!

  47. christine hills on February 11th, 2009 8:03 pm

    Funny thing on the news today it said ‘people were addicted to Chocolate,Coffee,and Facebook’,is this block due to a so called ‘maintenence check’ to test us to see how hooked on facebook we are????

  48. kwagzz on February 11th, 2009 10:57 pm

    I’ve been getting the same error. I just released and renewed my ipconfig and it worked.

    Hope it works for you too.

    command line::>>
    1st step: ipconfig /release
    2nd step: ipconfig /renew

  49. Ali on February 23rd, 2009 1:33 am

    MINE TOO! ugh i hated it

  51. Tracey on February 25th, 2009 10:32 pm

    I’m totally p*ssed with facebook at the moment Ive spent the last 6 hours trying to log in getting the temp unavailable screen. I eventually got on line and my account was working fine. I accidentally backspaced and logged out .. ARGH!!!! I’m back to square one … temp unavailable … its lying WHAT A PILE OF PANTS!!

  52. b on March 4th, 2009 5:40 am

    “Account Unavailable” and “Site Maintenance” usually means that we’re making an improvement to the database that your account is stored on. While we’re doing this, you will not be able to access your account. In most instances, this maintenance will last only a few hours. Please note:

    * After the maintenance is over, you will still be able to login with the same password.
    * Your profile and account will not be affected by the maintenance.
    * We don’t do site maintenance on all accounts at the same time, so it is possible that some of your friends will be able to access the site while your account is unavailable.
    * It is not necessary to contact us about Site Maintenance.
    * If your maintenance lasts longer than 24 hours, please follow these instructions to clear your browser’s cache and cookies.

  53. Ian on March 5th, 2009 5:18 pm

    Follow what instructions ??

  54. Jura on March 7th, 2009 1:42 am

    Same problem here dudes!!
    whole fuckin day i have this situation,and silly me put some imoprtant contacts and persons on facebook.
    i ‘ mtravelin tommorow and can’t get in touch with those people…

  55. Robert on April 8th, 2009 1:28 am

    Mine has been down today all morning.. still can’t login.. **Sigh**

  56. Doug on April 8th, 2009 3:57 am

    Is this where Facebook Addicts come to vent when they can’t get any????
    :) ))

  57. Steve Green on April 8th, 2009 3:58 am

    Guys, you all complain about Facebook Maintenance. Its a website that allows you to communicate and play and post photos. So what….Thay have to do some Maintenance and you can’t access it for a few day or whatever – You must have such a great life if this is all you can depend on as a social life – try getting a real life.
    Facebook is great when its up and then noone complains – So they have to do some Maintenance to make improvements to performance if they didn’t you’d complain even more…….Give them a break guys how about posting something you enjoy about Facebook and how much you miss it when its not there. If facebook was mine i’d make you all suffer and close it down – go design your own site with all your free time.

  58. bobby on April 8th, 2009 4:22 am


  59. Pearl on April 8th, 2009 11:58 pm

    Why does “site maintenance” effect only a few people and not the ENTIRE site??!! Like so many others, I cannot log in but my boyfriend can. WTF?? Even more frustrating… no answers from Facebook. So please don’t tell me to “stop complaining”. I’m looking for answers and I’m getting NOTHING.

  60. Raja anand on April 18th, 2009 12:19 am

    Ive had the same all day….cant get into the account….and I dont understand why….at least they could give more details as to why….rather than a general Maintainance message.

  61. Kriss :( on April 18th, 2009 1:35 am

    Well I do hate to complain….but I can’t get onto my f/b! This is devastating to me because the stuff I have on f/b, I can’t retrieve from the computer I started with. It’s gone. The pics and some important info. (to me) is on my f/b and I depend on it to get in touch w/ people. It claims it’s doing site maintenace…but it’s been going on for way too long. Honestly, what the hell is on my profile that’s taking them so long to “fix”. Nothing was broken in the first place. Never had a problem before and when I msg’d the f/b team, they didn’t respond. All I want is for someone from f/b to tell me….yes, they are infact fixing things up. That’s all I wanna hear!!! Otherwise I think someone has hacked into my f/b. Not cool!

  62. Officewhore on April 18th, 2009 1:37 am

    In a site this large, you don’t just have one database handling members. You have MANY. This is why some people can log in fine while others are getting the site maintenance message. They have taken down one (or more) database server(s) and are doing maintenance on it.

  63. Graham on April 18th, 2009 1:46 am

    Happen to my wifes account today, quite funny to watch her getting annoyed with her PC.

    Found a work around click on the forgot password, enter your email address, follow the link in the email and change your password or just type in the same password, this then logs you in.

    Hope this helps the people who can’t live without it.

  64. cody on May 4th, 2009 10:37 am

    Just got the message today. How long does this usually last for?

  65. Paula on May 6th, 2009 5:08 am

    I am getting this message although it doesn’t say its because of maintenance , it is saying due to a site issue, they are always doing this to me, my boyfriends and all my families are logging in fine!

  66. TraviSto on May 6th, 2009 4:10 pm

    k,it works perfectly on internet explorer but when i log in on mozilla firefox it has that stupid message. so if all you people are using firefox and getting this message switch to internet explorer n i guarenteed it will work.They need to fix something in firefox,maybe theres a bug in it that has something to do with facebook,for now try IE,and for all you people not using firefox and are using IE and it doesnt work,maybe switch to firefox…i dont know if it would work im just suggesting ideas.

  67. Kevin J. Wangler on May 6th, 2009 8:54 pm

    Boo. Just started happening to me yesterday, then cleared up, and now this morning it’s back again. Guess the db server that my account is on is having some issues, as it’s clearly not affecting most people.

    Hope they get it fixed soon!

  68. BB on May 11th, 2009 9:17 am

    Happened to me this afternoon. Most of my FB woes happen on the weekend. My guess is that the weekend crew , if they are like every other place I’ve ever worked, are the least senior/experienced, techs on staff and don’t always get things, just right. I look at it as a blessing in that I get to sample what my life was like before I was consumed with Mafia wars. And if it never came back (because I broke one of FB’s 10,000 and 1 unwritten rules, I’d probably be better off anyway.

  69. Darryl on May 11th, 2009 9:24 am

    OMFG im having the same problem with like basically everyone else. >=O. im using google chrome and trying to log on facebook but stupid site maintenance shit is pissing me off WTF is it something I did or something ? can people like file complaints on you ? stupid piece of shit

  70. Sheryl on May 17th, 2009 4:27 am

    Here’s my two cents, because I am wicked grumpy too.
    if site maintenance is REALLY the issue, fine. And if it takes a “few hours”, fine. But if it is really going to take more than a few hours, then just tell me.

    however, if there is something else going on–like I unwittingly added a bad guy to my mafia clan or planted too many coconut trees in My Farm, I feel as though I ought to have an explanation. Communication is what facebook was founded on, right?
    How about facebook communicate with us?

  71. Niko on May 17th, 2009 6:50 am

    My account was unavailable since yesterday morning. I was playing my farm town and suddenly the server said lost connection and im logged out. Until now, i still cannot login to my facebook.

  72. Mark on May 17th, 2009 5:00 pm

    I have had this damn annoying message for the first time in three years and I have not been able to log on all weekend now.

    I now understand how some of you guys must feel. I am also spending a few hours a week playing Mafia Wars. It is bloody frustrating as I hope and wonder if my account will be deleted for good.

    I hope not as I have contact details of friends that I have not seen for many years.

  73. lisamarie on May 17th, 2009 8:28 pm

    I am seriously pissed, i am a stay at home bored out of my brain mother that has a god given right to play facebook. MAINTENANCE MY ASS YOU FB MAKERS ARE SERIOUSLY BURNING MY PISS NO END

  74. jezza on May 17th, 2009 9:39 pm

    this is crap, its been a week now..
    and none of my friends accounts are like this..
    its really starting to annoy me :|

  75. maria angelica on May 17th, 2009 11:57 pm

    necesito saber cuando se vuelve habilitar mi pagina es urgente estoy desde el dia 15 del presente mes sin poder meterme en mi pagina por favor es urgente ……..

    y mandeme una respuesta

  76. eek on May 18th, 2009 1:57 am

    Does anyone know how to get past this ‘site maintenance?

  77. omgwtf on May 18th, 2009 1:19 pm

    My account went down for “several hours” for maintenance on Friday. It’s now Sunday night and I’ve not had access to my account all week end. I wrote a letter to their customer service site, they changed my password and told me to write back if that didn’t solve the issue. Well it didn’t, so I wrote them back and heard nothing after that.

    There should be a status update page for Facebook that allows the to tell users when database maintenance is going on for longer than expected. I kind of doubt that this is maintenance still..I mean four days? Something is broken. And while I’m a Facebook addict, I’ve been a patient one. I was polite in my e-mails, did productive stuff over the weekend instead of stalk my friends and play my Mafia wars, and socialized with people..in person. However, I’m starting to get really freaking annoyed.

    Just wanted to let ya’ll know that you’re not alone. Misery loves company, right? :(

  78. Will Caton on May 18th, 2009 8:46 pm

    I have read every single post on this topic as I am suffering the same as everyone else.

    I am trying to find out what casued the site maintenance message to appear. i do not think it matters wehter you are using Firfox or internet explorer and have cleared my cookies and temp folders etc and still no joy. I am using internet explorer.

    for me the problem started when I joined a few mass adding groups for Mob wars. Have any of you done the same and now have your account locked?

    Is so do you remember which add me groups you joined. I was adding friends at a rate of 30 – 40 a day and this could have flagged me to facebook.

    I’m just now trying to find a common thread so we can work out the problem. If anyone knows of a fix I would be interested.

    thanks for reading

  79. numbscribbles on May 19th, 2009 4:42 am

    i am having this same issue…..like everyone else in this thread. mine has been down since friday night. My friend and I checked my profile from her account, and all my pics, videos, and wall posts have been deleted. has anyone heard from FB yet about the issue? its so annoying. I have gotten through a few times yesterday and and saturday, but not at all today. how long with this crap last???

  80. squirrel on May 21st, 2009 1:49 pm

    Same problem here! Except my partner can log in and when he tries to view my page it says unavailable. What a crappy service. Contact disabled@facebook.com or info@faceboo.com but who knows how long they will take to answer the email. I tried to phone them but it is automated and says they don’t deal with user issues over the phone. If it weren’t for all the apps I use I would close my account. Facebook has the all time worst customer service ever!

  81. adamz on May 26th, 2009 6:18 am

    Mine now, but, has ANYONES facebook NOT comeback at al after this?

    As long as i get on once or twice a week im not bothered but i am if its GONE gone.

  82. Lolona on May 26th, 2009 7:59 am

    Me too – first time in 2 years. It has been down since 8 AM. I know we’re not paid customers. But together we have brought FB to where it is now. And why does it say a few hours when it is much longer than that? Come on, FB, get some decent DBAs!

  83. dom on June 12th, 2009 5:11 am

    all day when i log into my facebook it says site under maitenance! I can’t have ben blocked i do nothing wrong? it said it would be just a few hours..! Not! usually when i go onto facebook in my favourites it takes me to my profile page as im automatically logged on! but this time it came up with the login screen, when i try to log in it says the maintenance thing! fgs can anyone help?!

  84. Pet on July 3rd, 2009 2:12 pm

    I think this is some kind of virus or malware. I receive this message on my computer but when I open it on my laptop (same network) it works fine.

  85. Alvin Moleta on July 10th, 2009 10:25 am

    i also received those “site maintenance” notifications when i try to log in to facebook… sometimes i can log in but when i try to post something i get the message “validation error” i think and sometimes “transport error”… i can’t also acccess my applications… my brother also uses facebook and everything is fine with his account… was my account banned or something? and what did i do to be banned if i was really banned… it’s been three days and still it’s not working properly… i hope it could still be fixed…

  86. Amber on July 13th, 2009 2:23 am

    i use facebook everyday and its fine but when it doesnt let me log in because of site maintenance, i find it so annoying especially when everyone elses works fine && also if you need to get in contact with someone

  87. Nick on July 22nd, 2009 10:43 pm

    Yup, same thing on mine today. One diference, I was logged in, left for 40 min or so, and came back, clicked, and there’s the screen. It’s not malware, its facebook.

  88. yo on July 23rd, 2009 12:26 pm


  89. damnit! on July 23rd, 2009 12:58 pm

    facebook SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  90. Britt on July 26th, 2009 1:49 am

    Well, for the last two days none of my internet browsers (Safari, Firefox, Omniweb) will even connect to anything facebook at ALL. I don’t even get a “maintenance” page – just “cannot load address.”

  91. FBaddict on July 28th, 2009 5:06 pm

    same thing just happened to me now, but i dont think its a virus or malware. i tried logging on via iphone and it wouldnt let me through either. at first i thought it was the iphone, but when i tried my laptop i received the same messages as everyone else. i hope it doesn’t last long. is there any way to contact facebook about this? =(

  93. Elizabeth on July 31st, 2009 9:03 pm

    I’m having the same problem as everyone else! I can’t log on because it says its due to site maintenance. Its been like this since 8pm last night and now I’m at work and its 9am.

    I was wondering how long did people have to wait before they were able to get on again? What did you do? Why does facebook do this and not to others?

  94. kat on August 7th, 2009 2:28 pm

    happening to me right now. this is waaay aggravating. i needed to update something on fb. i can’t even login my facebook mobile. damn!!!!!!!!!

  95. maddy on August 7th, 2009 3:01 pm

    i’m having the same issue mine is logging due to site maintinence and its beens everal hours but my mum’s account is working anyone ever had some accounts working others not?

  96. Lynn on August 7th, 2009 3:15 pm

    Same thing happening to me. It’s been two hours now and I’m kind of getting frustrated, I have messages to reply to. All I ever really do is post pictures and notes, play on farmtown and talk to friends, I have no idea what’s going on.

    I tried everything that people suggested and still no luck, though facebook seems to be causing itunes huge amounts of lag even though I can’t log in. Hopefully facebook resolves this soon, it’s really bugging me.

  97. Ehsen Naveed Irfan on August 7th, 2009 3:17 pm

    I am also facing this issue of account temporarily unavailable, how can it resolve ?

  98. morelikefacesuck on August 7th, 2009 4:02 pm


  99. Kimmo on August 10th, 2009 9:17 pm

    Same problem here?? So far my account has worked fine, but now all I get is the account unavailable message?? WTF?

  100. Taohid on August 12th, 2009 4:08 pm

    I cannot enter in my facebook account. When I put the password it shows the message “Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
    can you help me anyone?

  101. hero on August 12th, 2009 6:17 pm

    try to use internet explorer to login, and then change the password..

    it worked for me just now

  102. marjoram on August 13th, 2009 6:13 pm

    Does anyone have a solution yet?! this is the first time it’s happened to me and it sucks real bad!! I need to post some stuff man! WTF!

  103. Jen Parker on August 13th, 2009 7:23 pm

    It’s happening to me, to. Started last night and I haven’t been able to log on since.

  104. David on August 13th, 2009 11:56 pm

    I am having the same issue, also since last night. I e-mailed Facebook this morning but have not heard back! Help!

  105. JordanaLovesMetallica on August 14th, 2009 3:23 am

    I havent been able to log on for the whole day!
    so I tried Internet Explorer and it worked :)
    and I heared somewhere that it’s only unavailable for the maximum of 3 days, if it’s more than a week then make a new account and contact the facebook developers.
    good luck guys (Y) xx

  106. Edinburghgirl on August 16th, 2009 12:54 am

    Same message with me. Been site maintenance for 10 hours now.

  107. kyle breheny on August 16th, 2009 4:29 am

    This has been happening to me for a while too, what’s going on is, with facebook updating so much, they have things like glitches and bugs, think about this they are trying to update over billions of profiles, sometime things go wrong, what they are doing is fixing this problem, it takes them ages to update and fix things, you might not know it, but your profile can be pretty fucked up. Mine does things like tell me i have notifications when i really don’t. Pretty much your facebook is fucked, your better off making another one. What they did was disable you from getting on that account, since with this glitch it allows hackers to make it through their security blahblahblah. So if this happening to you, just make a temporary account for now, and sooner or later they will fix it, it might take from a few minutes, to hours, to even months, but your account will be back sooner or later

  108. amanda on August 17th, 2009 2:24 am

    i used f/b yesterday morning it was fine . turned pc on again at tea time and got the maintainance message temp unavailable for a few hours it is now sun pm and still no joy jst cant get logged in yet my 2 daughters can on the same pc , help how frustrating .

Tried clearing cookies, cache file, switching of modem etc. My household members can access FB all on this same PC just appears to be my FB account. Not good there is not FB Customer service dept, phone line etc

  110. Rachael on August 17th, 2009 4:44 pm

    How long do facebook class as a few hours as my account has been “temporarily unavailable” for 48 hours now. I’ve tried clearing my cookies and cache but to no avail. It came back on last night for about 5 mins but i couldn’t access anything other than my home page. I have sent 3 emails to facebook now with 1 automated email reply from them. Please can anyone help with this issue?

  111. Kay on August 22nd, 2009 4:54 pm

    I am having the same issue too, I cannot login to FB due to site maintainence, however, I can login with my Iphone, my boyfriend can login to his account just fine, however, people have told me they cannot access my profile at all, it says temporarily unavailable….
    Somehow, I really don’t like the idea of them feeding me BS about site maintainence when others can login perfectly fine, also, why hide my profile… Big Brother is watching perhaps?

  112. sunshine on August 27th, 2009 8:17 pm

    same thing happening to me! I rly dont want to make a new one!!

  113. Adam on August 28th, 2009 11:46 pm

  114. b on August 29th, 2009 3:43 am
  115. Austin on August 29th, 2009 6:19 am

  119. Poodle on September 4th, 2009 2:33 am

    I hate when this happens!!!!!!! I can log in to my friends’ accounts, and everyone else’s accounts, but more than half the time, when I try and log in to MY facebook account, it will say: “Account Unavailable.
    Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

    What can we do to fix this problem??? I am fixing to just delete my facebook, and keep my myspace only…

  120. MickyD on September 4th, 2009 10:04 pm

    This is getting worse!! been using FB for a while, but never had a problem until recently. Now we’re getting this stupid message 2 or 3 times a day!! Get your servers upgraded/sorted out Facebook, or sack your staff!!!

  121. find your happiness on September 13th, 2009 2:18 pm

    you guys are gay.. get a life..

  122. cj on September 16th, 2009 4:58 am

    I’ve been getting the same message for the last 5 days. This worries me because I’m a promoter and cultivating my social network and re freshening it is how I pay the bills. I have another facebook account that works fine it’s just that i have 3000+ friends on my main account.

    I have read every single post and utilized all useful posts (cleared my cache/ cookies , etc)

    What has somewhat worked for me was swtiching from firefox to internet explorer and after a few failed attempts at logging in on internet explorer it went through.
    I went ahead and changed my password and now facebook is working like normal on internet explorer (although i still can’t log in with firefox)

    hope this helps a little.

  123. facebok sucks on September 16th, 2009 1:19 pm

    I can’t even log on. I may get a few minutes on but then it says site maintenance. Its all Bull Sh*T!!!!!!!!

    hrs”wtf is going on?

  140. H on September 23rd, 2009 11:11 am

    I got the “Account Unavailable Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.” message a few hours ago. Facebook is beginning to suck. First, they should have warned me that it would be down. And, if they were going to do something to MY account, they should let me know & let me know when it’s back up!

  141. gian on September 23rd, 2009 2:06 pm

    i already lose my crops in farmville… is there any way??? facebook suck…

  142. Spike on September 23rd, 2009 3:12 pm

    OK people. Obviously none of you have a working knowledge of computers, or servers. Facebook uses MANY different computers (servers) to store the immense amount of data that users upload. Eventually these drives get maxed out and larger ones are needed. To do this, you need to shut down that server, or at least that hard drive. If you’re account happens to be on that drive… guess what? You’re SOL until they finish the upgrade. Get used to it. Computers always need maintenance for one thing or another. In the meantime, get your lazy asses outside and get some exercise in the outdoors. By the way, that bright shining thing in the sky won’t hurt you. It’s called the Sun.

  143. DIVYAM on September 24th, 2009 3:59 pm

    hey even i got this message
    will my account come back or not
    Has anyone recovered back his account after this problem?

  144. King Kong on September 25th, 2009 12:32 am

    I got the ‘Account temporary unavailable due to maintenance;try again in a few hours’on my facebook log-in page & went into panic mode!.
    I had important messages to get & send to people dear to me.I thought was it something I did? like post too many youtubes to incur their wrath?.
    Happy ending: next day I’m back on my facebook account intact.Maybe they REALLY DO need to switch off your account for local server maintenance.
    So don’t panic at first folks.Have faith.Only if you have been really naughty would you be permanently shut down;- could really be urgent maintenance they are doing for a few hours!.

  145. nsog on September 25th, 2009 3:13 am

    ^ that dude up doesnt have a clue. yes they use many servers. but they are not computers as you know them.. they are warehouses of data, maintained by compaines facebook pays to keep the data on. you dont shut down those drives. when you need somthing changed you just hot swap the drives which can operate one less without loosing data. and the “drives” are units containing up to 24 drives all working in a raid cluster or somthing similar.
    when they need more data they get a new system and copy it over and switch while live. no shutting down

    down for maintenance.. what a joke. facebook is a bunch of lazy asses

  146. nsog on September 25th, 2009 3:20 am
  147. GANDA5254 on September 26th, 2009 9:19 am

    Account Unavailable
    Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    WHAT? Don’t they even give notice about scheduled maintence. Will I really get this back? I’m getting my FB texts from friends who apparently are able to login.

  151. ditya on September 28th, 2009 3:07 pm

    Account Unavailable

    This stupid message always appear when i try to login to facebook this day. its so annoying..
    does anyone help this solve out?

  152. Fionab on September 29th, 2009 3:47 pm

    Goodbye strawberries… I agree, Facebook should at least WARN us. I think they’re too big for their britches. Any developers out there working on something more user-friendly and dependable?

  153. puzzle on September 30th, 2009 5:27 am

    I can log in and do everything, but my friends can’t see me!!! I am like a ghost when I comment – no picture and no name and when they search my profile, it tells them that it is temporary unavailable. But I can log in !

  154. Bartok on October 1st, 2009 9:33 pm

    I am getting the same message, been locked out of FB for 10 hours now.

    I can’t believe that FB don’t have the ability to let users know in advance when they are going to do maintenance.

  155. katrin on October 1st, 2009 9:34 pm

    i have it for the last two week everytime i try to log in!!! but only when do it on my laptop. Whenever i use other laptops everything works and i can easily log into my account.
    So definitely THERE IS NO MAINTENANCE!!!! (especially for that computer-smart guy Spike!!!)

  162. Wok on October 2nd, 2009 5:23 pm

    okay, it’s only been a few hours since I’ve been getting this maintenance thing,, so trying not to rush into any conclusions,, I tried to login using my cousin’s Facebook account, hers work just fine, anyway, here’s what I read on Facebook’s help thing,,

    “We don’t do site maintenance on all accounts at the same time, so it is possible that some of your friends will be able to access the site while your account is unavailable.”

    keeping my fingers crossed

  163. Sally on October 2nd, 2009 5:24 pm

    Happy Birthday Lucy!

    I have the same message:
    Account Unavailable

    Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    However I have tried doing what you did and going to widgets and it doesn’t work for me, I still have no facebook :(

    Thanks for sharing that tho.

  164. joven on October 2nd, 2009 5:29 pm

  166. jeff on October 2nd, 2009 5:58 pm

    okay guys….. i have been reading most of your post about this account unavailable thing…..
    well…. i actually have contacted the facebook developers…. believe it or not… they said that their maintenance for each account actually will only take less than 10 mins! the problem is that we are IMPATIENT enough to wait that it floods their servers with request to access our accounts! thats why it’s so DAMN LONG!…..

  167. jeff on October 2nd, 2009 5:58 pm

    BTW…. add me in mafia wars^^ jrcoanan2004@yahoo.com tnx:D and ninja saga

  168. Jenny Mary Nash on October 2nd, 2009 6:00 pm

    Hope you are having a nice 15th birthday (albeit without your Facebook birthday messages)Lucy.

  169. minching lim on October 4th, 2009 6:43 pm

    Account Unavailable

    Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    WHY???? i’ve been unable to login FACEBOOK since 5hrs ago….

  170. Chelsea on October 5th, 2009 12:25 am

    Please help

  171. Jen on October 5th, 2009 2:51 am

    It’s been about 10hrs and I still can’t logged into my account. Obviously, we should petition to fb that we need to be informed a day earlier if they are going to do site maintenance. I had added an application of a facebook profile layout colour. So, this may be the culprit of why I can’t logged into my account. I had never had this problem for 2years. Ok if anyone, who had experienced this problem pls give us an answered whether you guys able to logged in a few days or a week later…we need some info pls

  172. candycain on October 5th, 2009 3:06 am

    my fb account has been unavailable since last night around 7pm! The widget thing didn’t work for me either.

  173. Gail on October 5th, 2009 3:26 am

    I haven’t been able to access FB all day, and find it somewhat depressing that the problem is so widespread, and can last for so long. Woe is me.

  174. Christophe C on October 5th, 2009 3:31 am

    Same problem here minching lim, since last night… 24 h now, starts to piss me of… :-( (((

  175. David on October 5th, 2009 5:08 am

    “Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience”

  177. joe on October 5th, 2009 6:25 am

    ffs this is shite ive not been able to get on all day, but it says only a few hours! im dependant on facebook aswell really for my lifts to collage etc. ive been on facebook since november 2008 and this has never happened, the only dodgy thing is that fb chat… please help, joe

  178. mandy on October 5th, 2009 6:27 am

  180. ajohn on October 5th, 2009 9:13 am

    Same with me, aprox. 12hours my account is unavailable.

  181. nicola on October 5th, 2009 9:13 am

    this is the most annoying thing ever! why us!

  182. karen on October 5th, 2009 11:50 am

    Oh, my gosh…. this is far toooo long to wait for maintenance…..have not been able get on facebook alll day!!!!!

  183. Kristie on October 5th, 2009 12:14 pm

    I’ve been “down for maintenance” and asked to “please check back in a few hours” for over twelve hours now ….. I’m starting to figure out that Facebook’s idea of what constitutes “a few hours” is clearly very different than how the rest of the world tells time!!! Very annoying, though, I can agree with that.

    Same here guys. In two hours it’s going to be 24 hours since i haven’t been able to access my account due to this site maintenance. I’ve been with FB for two years now, and this is the longest i can remember being locked out of my account because of something like this.

    I got crops that need to be harvested soon in Farm town, and items to sell in Be a tycoon,lol.

    This is ridiculous!!

  192. fuckingfacebook on May 5th, 2010 12:39 am

    Hey dude’s ! Some1 have a plan how to solve this problem?!

  193. fuckingfacebook on May 5th, 2010 12:47 am

    I really need help. Some of you guys have said, yeah, it’ll work when you click on ‘widgets’ down there, where you can find ‘help’ and ‘privacy’ and ‘about’ and all of that stuff, but it wont! I tried everything! Seriously! This is so hilarious. I need to log on to facebook. Facebook is MY LIFE! Anyway. I really need it. If some guys have a plan how to solve this, please let me know. Just Post something. If you are really pissed with facebook now, just watch this, and the time will fly. This is so totaly irrelevant, I know.
    here it comes:


    aand, remember. let me know! :D

    Yhea, Im really ggetting annoyed. I love facebook & its doing this foolishness..I mean wtf? I NEED H E L P! What if someone hacked into my thing? Smhh. Bout to go back to myspace & stop using this wackk shit…

  196. Facebook Sucks on June 4th, 2010 2:16 pm

    The problem still exists. These people are really idiots. Have they ever heard of clustering? DUH!!!! You never ever ever take down a whole site for maintenance unless you are really stupid and have no online hot spares to handle load. When was the last time Microsoft/Google/MSN/CNN/Yahoo/name your site went down for maintenance. This is totally ridiculous. Poorly managed is putting this social site in a very generous light.

    Time for the next “hot” thing to take over. With their now infamous security issues and lack of addressing them, they are showing a complete lack of regard for their users.

  197. johnny on June 8th, 2010 12:30 am

  202. meriel lawson on July 24th, 2010 12:33 am

    this is such sh*t. if i try logging in on my laptop i get this error message but i can log in fine on my iphone, so they are obviously not doing maintenance on my account. they don’t care about any of their facebook users only about their advertising revenue which is paid to them regardless.

  203. kimberly on July 25th, 2010 12:01 am

    this morning i was using my facebook normal then i see something come up bout . am getting “account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance”. and if i do make a new one i will lose all my contact. is there something that i can make it work back

  204. kimberly on July 25th, 2010 12:17 am

    guys i dont if later it will give back problem but it start work back. what i do is go down the bottom of the page where privacy.i click on it then i go down the bottom of that page and click on privacy something again and i get to logging on my profle. but i change my password and email address when i logged in and then go on account settings to the left of my profile.incase there is a problem again

  205. Jayme on August 7th, 2010 11:36 am

    Mine was unavailable for 14 hours, and it just now came back. I couldn’t get on with my desktop, laptop or blackberry.

  207. laiah on August 14th, 2010 11:48 pm

  208. Mintwab on August 16th, 2010 6:13 pm

    I’m getting it too, I hope my account doesn’t disappear. How the hell do I contact them to sort it out?

  209. Jarett on August 18th, 2010 8:23 pm

    This is complete bullshit. This is how we stay in contact with people around the world. Especially if we are in the military and are serving around the globe. You’d think fb would consider that they are fucking with everybodys shit and at least let them know before they perform “site maintaince”. It sure as hell would be alot easier to tell the difference between the Facebook team and a hacker.

  210. lucy on August 20th, 2010 3:13 pm

    I had this problem today.
    I managed to fix it by changing my browser from IE to Firefox. And then being the paranoid self I am, I quickly changed my password and now it’s working fine, (hopefully it’ll continue to do so). This better not happen again.

  211. Chidum opara on August 21st, 2010 1:23 am

    I can not no long log in to my face book accnunt since two days now.Each time i tried to log in always getting my account has been temporary unavailable.What do i do?

  212. Mina on August 24th, 2010 7:44 am

    i definitely had the same problem, im on facebook 24/7 my computer never gets turned on and i was a little upset when i first got this message :Unable to save your Chat settings when i was chatting with a friend. followed by a Please relog in….so i tried and got this message that you have all been getting Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    i can honestly say it was down for a shirt period of about 30 minutes but i got frustrated and needed to do something about it with a little simple research i found out how to make my account work i simply cleared my cookies and caches simply which can be found on google. withing 2 minutes with simple steps from google i was able to access my account

    * NO YOUR ACCOUNTS HAVE NO BEEN DELETED, NOR HAVE YOU DONE ANYTHING WRONG :) i was worried to haha but i hope this helps all of you i couldn’t imagine not being able to log on for days yet weeks
    lets cross our fingers it won’t boot me off to
