That's about yesterday's outage...but it has a helpful link to Facebook's 
twitter, where they apparently just posted[1]

   We've fixed the issue with a third-party networking provider, and anyone
   impacted should be able to access Facebook normally.

yet facebook.com is still largely busted.  The main page took quite a 
while, but did eventually load.  Clicking links on it yields:

  Service Unavailable - DNS failure

  The server is temporarily unable to service your request. Please try
  again later.
  Reference #11.e321d0d1.1285271763.14f5425

I think they're still dealing with some issues.

[1] I don't use twitter, and though it says that was posted "less than 20 
seconds ago via HootSuite", I call BS...because minutes later, it still 
says "less than 20 seconds ago..."  So for all I know, that could be their 
tweet from yesterday.
