Facebook has issues.

Facebook has been painfully slow over the past couple of days. The picture below is what I actually saw when I went to my Facebook homepage today.

This is the kind of problem that fast success brings – scaling problems. And pain for your average user.

When you are writing Facebook applications and a single Facebook API call is taking at least 250 milliseconds, then this is a huge problem.

Of course I notice that the ad is still served up just fine even if the page is otherwise useless.
