I have had two reports of "can't get to facebook" from campus today, not
exactly from 3rd-tier helpdesk techs mind you, but a reasonably
reputable source.  "Traceroute stops at" (yeah, I know).

Works fine from campus for me, and they say the machine does "nslookup"
a Facebook CDN provider IP (  They can go anywhere else,
no problem.  Verified they have our DHCP server and internal recursive
DNS servers so it's not an issue at that level.

I'm "ONLY" bringing this up as my spidey-sense is wondering if there is
some facebook-captive malware or browser plugin floating about? 

Ring any bells?

If nothing else comes in I'm going to write it off as a Sunday evening
hallucination and check it again tomorrow :)
