Facebook error message went down for aboutt 15 minutes between 4:00 and 4:15 AM EST. Users trying to connect to the site were seeing an error message "Sorry, something went wrong".  The issue has been confirmed by multiple locations around the world and as far as we can tell all Facebook users were affected.

The Facebook Platform Status showed a sharp increase in API response times for the time of the outage.
