Oops! A Facebook Connect glitch-slash-bug banjaxed some of the world wide web’s major players yesterday, redirecting their sites to a Facebook error page. Websites that suffered a wipeout included CNN, NBC News and AOL’s Huffington Post. The Verge reported that its sister sites Polygon andSBNation had also taken one for the team. The problem seemed to be for people logging in to other sites via Facebook.
Never underestimate the power of Facebook, o beloved firms who allow your users to connect via the Facebook platform. The firm filed a document(.pdf file) for the SEC last week which stated that 50 million pages and 10 million apps are hooked up to the social network.
I was wondering what the hell was going on.
