Database Issues for Facebook

Some Facebook members were not able to access their accounts for days due to a database issue at the social-networking site, CNET reported.

One comment on an unrelated post on Facebook’s blog, according to CNET:

My original page has been locked since 10/2/09 due to ‘site maintenance’. I have contacted FB numerous times and done everything that I have been instructed to do on the site maintenance site…to no avail. PLEASE FB HELP ME.

Facebook spokeswoman Malorie Lucich said in an email to CNET Tuesday afternoon:

We are currently experiencing a technical issue with one of our databases that is resulting in an extended period of maintenance for some users. We are working on a fix now and hope to have this resolved in the next 24 hours. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
