Facebook isn’t down, but it did start an odd trending topic on Twitter Friday night as confused iPhone owners tried to figure out why the social network logged them out. I haven’t found an explanation for why this happened, but it appears that everyone accessing the app via an iOS app has to log back in, and many people who use two-factor authentication are having trouble reconnecting.
A Facebook spokesperson gave Engadget the following statement: “We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. We’re looking into reports that some people are currently having to login again to access their Facebook accounts. We believe this was due to a configuration change and we’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
