Looks like someone is messing with the domain nameservers.  Possibly a
domain hijack?

panzer:~ chaynes$ whois facebook.com

Whois Server Version 2.0

Domain names in the .com and .net domains can now be registered
with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
for detailed information.


To single out one record, look it up with "xxx", where xxx is one of the
of the records displayed above. If the records are the same, look them
with "=xxx" to receive a full display for each record.

It looks like facebook is having DNS troubles. The www.facebook.com  
subdomain is delegated to some servers that are no longer answering.  
Also apps.facebook.com is a cname to www-college.facebook.com which  
gets no reply.
