Facebook is down!! — UPDATED

That’s new, Facebook DNS gone crazy?

Facebook is down all over the world, this must be their worst outage in their history from what seems to be a DNS error.

It should only take a while to have it up again but that’s a major failure not expected from the so far stable service of Facebook.

Live stream from all over the world mention losing access on facebook.com the last 10 minutes when many people had problems with images and sharing.

 

UPDATE

Service is restored, as quickly as expected, DNS queries are now responding normally, below are the responses during the outages (querying google DNS)
