Facebook rebounds after users report outages


HOUSTON – Facebook appears to be rebounding after users were greeted Monday around noon with a message saying the site had experienced an error. 

"Sorry, something went wrong,” the error message read. “We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can."

KXAS reported the website outage-tracking site Downdetector received a spike in reports of problems with Facebook. A map showed the outages concentrated in the Northeast and Midwest of the United States, as well as southern Brazil.

NBC is reaching out to Facebook for comment.

Some Houston institutions were having a little fun with the outage, using the hashtag #FacebookDown.
