    I’ve been seeing this message for the last 13 hours. Other folks I know are having no problems, so it must be the server my account is on. Very frustrating.

    i am having the same issue… haven't been able to log in for 20 hours now. I have submitted a report to facebook and got a generic letter regarding the new layout problems…… I play multiple farming games and all of my crops are lost.. I'm very upset and can't get answers from anyone as to why maintenance would take over 20 hours to perform . None of my friends are having any issues with this problem …only me and now I see some of you guys. My computer is virus free and I have all the proper firefox, so I am just not understanding this problem:(

    I posted this on another page, thought I would put it here too.

    I was locked out of my account for 24 hours. While searching for an answer I found a link for facebook lite. This site let me log in, and I clicked on the facebook logo at the top, which directed me to the normal facebook page. I have been able to log in and out with no problems now. Im sorry but I dont have a link , but I do hope this helps. It was driving me crazy!

    36 hours now, totally ridiculous. I find Facebook's help section hugely ineffectual and their generic "sorry we don't know what's wrong either" email replies frustrating. I know we don't pay for this but others pay to advertise and their target audiences are potentially unable to view their content with these lengthy outtages not ot mention the loss of data that some users report when accounts do come back online.
