COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -

If you were unable to access Facebook Friday, you weren't alone.

The outage appeared to be widespread, with people all over the world taking to Twitter to let everyone know they were unable to access Facebook.

As of 10:34 a.m. MDT, the site was accessible again from the KRDO newsroom, but it was loading very slowly.

Facebook noted the trouble on a status site at 10 a.m., around the time that the at first sporadic outage began to snowball.
