It's been day 2, I think, of this erratic activity from Facebook -
"Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience."
This thought has just been a few seconds old as I'm typing this, and I'm still continuing to develop the theory, or at least the base of it...
It's really quite possible that Facebook wants to get its actual, or at least the near-the-truth actual figure of really how many users are registered and active in their use of Facebook. Sounds logical?
There has been an article already published here and another stat page from Facebook itself, trying to analyze the site traffic, usage clicks, status updates and whatnots - sorry I didn't read everything... But what if the developers of Facebook just want to update their stats while "offline" and actively determine how many of these users are quite dependent on their facebook accounts? For business communication, family affairs, keeping touch with friends or just spying on ex-boyfriends. What if they just want to know how many of these facebook fanatics and addicts will try with all their might to directly contact facebook people and complain about the extended "site maintenance"?
Hmmm? How about that? What do you think?
