Update (4:44 p.m. ET): Facebook appears to be back up for most users.
Facebook just began rolling out several new features, including newly redesigned brand Pages (first revealed about a week and a half ago), a new Photos section dubbed “Memories,” which allows users to view photos according to year, and the ability to switch accounts for managing different Facebook Pages without having to log out and log back in.
At around the time the new features began appearing (4:15 ET), the site went down for many users, including all of us here at Mashable. Per usual, hundreds of users have since turned to Twitter to complain about the outage.
We’ve reached out to Facebook to find out the reason for the downtime and will update the post with any additional information.
