Facebook glitch redirected sites to error pages

Early this morning, thousands of sites that use some form of Facebook integration were being redirected to an error page on Facebook, driving all traffic away from their original site destination.

The incident happened around 9AM this morning when pages from sites and blogs are redirected to Facebook’s error page.

This also affected our blog and we caught the glitch this morning. Since we did not know what was causing the redirection, we thought it was caused by a recent plugin that we installed from yesterday. This is the reason you are seeing Fb pages instead off this blog this morning.

Apparently, this also happened to a number of other sites that uses Facebook Authentication and numerous other sites were affected as well. {via}

This incident is a good reminder that a lot of website owners and webmasters as slowly integrating some of their critical services with Facebook (like FB user login, etc) and Facebook could become a single source of problem when similar incidents happen in the future.

    I just don’t know why most of the people not related to something they see, whines more than those who are directly affected. I’m not trying to start a fire or something, but this is what my Newsfeed is currently composed of. Yes I know some webdevs/Webmaster personally on facebook that cried about some things the SNSite does, But man, even those who doesn’t even know a bit, whines like they know more than how facebook should be built.
