Facebook website briefly goes down

Users of social media site Facebook reported experiencing outages Thursday afternoon.

The login page Facebook.com read, "Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can."

It was unclear how many users were affected. Facebook did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment. 

The ubiquitous social network was not the only to experience downtime this week, with Twitter's home page going offline Monday.
