Did Facebook App force log you out too?
Just before 9 p.m 22nd January, some Facebook users began reporting issues with the social media platform’s mobile app forcing them to log out and log back in again.
In what appears to be a mass log out, users report having to log back into their accounts. Many users got the message “session expired.” The so-called mass log out led to many questions across social media platforms as the topic trended on Twitter.
As for this author, I personally encountered the log out event on the Facebook app around 9 p.m., but didn’t have any trouble logging back in after seeing the “session expired” message.
After logging back in, the first post at the top of my newsfeed was from a coworker at NewsNation affiliate WIAT reporting she experienced the same thing, and from the comments, so had many of the people following her page.
In a statement to NewsNation late Friday, a Facebook spokesperson said:
“We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
