Same as everyone, facebook timing out

  1. I have been having the facebook issue for 3 days of it not loading, timing out.

    I am able to access on on my phone, it is not connected to my wifi.

    I have read the replies given and I have to be honest, I have no idea how to do the things suggested.

    I did try ping ing. I guess I wasn't doing it correctly because what it told me was that "pingwww.facebook.com is not recognized as an internal or external command"

    I was not sure who to ping but what I understood was to try to load facebook then open the command box and ping.

    Any help for a grandmom who is not tech or tech term savy?

    I wondered though why it seems to be a fix on peoples computers? It seems to me its a facebook thing, since that is suddenly the only page we cant load. I have several friends experiencing the same issue and they all started, as best we can tell, within the last few days.

    get the command prompt and enter ping www.facebook.com (note the <space> before www)

    Those with JAVA plugins seem to be more affected that others without - - in the browser, disable JAVA
