(Newser) – Facebook looks to be back in business after having serious tech trouble for the second straight day, reports Mashable. “We’ve resolved the tech issues that caused the site to be unavailable for some people," said the company in a tweet. "Everyone should now have access.” It's still not clear what happened, but the trouble began about 2:30pm.

Twitter then promptly lit up with complaints from frustrated users. During the lull, MG Siegler at TechCrunch noted: "This is a problem not just because the site is down, but Facebook’s omnipresent Like button is also completely down, and so is Connect, and Platform—in other words, the entire Internet (or a good percentage of it) is feeling this pain." Facebook said today's glitch was unrelated to yesterday's.
