Was in the middle of posting something for a client's page, and now I can't load Facebook at all.

 

Sorry, something went wrong.
We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can.

Bizarre! I've tried on BigPipe (Auckland, Fibre) and 2degrees (4G), in Safari (Mac, iOS), Chrome (Mac) and Edge (Windows). Same error as above.

 

Might try Google's DNS and see if that helps.

Using Opera VPN is a quick work around.
