Facebook was closed for maintenance when I left for a council meeting tonight- still off now. What is going on?

It's been pretty widespread/global for a while. I was reading about it. Apparently it isn't hacked.

Please help! I have a great Doro phone and could get onto Facebook with no problem. Alas no more as soon as I put Facebook on it keeps switching off. I can get onto the Browser and Twitter. It is very strange, there one day now gone!
