After doing some work today I decided to log into my Facebook account and see what the people are doing. It took some time to get a page to load and originally I thought it was a slow connection but instead I was greeted with the â€œweâ€™re upgradingâ€ page. This upgrade was a little unexpected as there were no rumors flying around about it or anything posted on the Facebook blog about the site going through an upgrade.
This could be a functionality upgrade or a hardware upgrade. I do hope that it is a upgrade of functionality to the Applications and Advertising code they have been using.
Edit (31/07/2007 3:20pm) What I don’t get is who does a upgrade in the middle of the day? Normally people do this in the lowest traffic period.
The Register reported a security breach this morning. Maybe they’re fixing it and that explains why they need to do it during the day?
