Users were automatically logged off Facebook Friday night in the middle of sessions, sparking a wave of confusion and inquiries from the affected.
The Downdetector.com website, which tracks outages, said users who reported in overwhelmingly suffered from log-outs, with some minor instances of being unable to reach newsfeeds or use messenger. Logging back in required credentials, which many were wary of providing, fearing a hack.
The incident began around 7 PM. Those already on the site were automatically logged off, while other users were unable to access the site. The outages affected both desktop and mobile users.
