Facebook Blocking Jordan OR A Technical Problem?
Since yesterday, several people in Jordan were not able to access facebook. Some people thought that Orange the main ISP in Jordan, the second mobile operator and the only landline service provider in the country, is behind the blocking. A senior executive in Orange confirmed to ArabCrunch that accessing facebook is a problem that many are facing in Jordan. However he refuted any claims that Orange is doing the blocking, he also said there are no technical problems from Orange side; it might be something from facebook side.
Other facebook users using other ISPs in Jordan also complained to ArabCrunch they cannot access facebook.
Yet, according to several users ArabCrunch got in touch with, facebook is still accessible in Jordan via Mobile apps in Nokia S60 devices and iPhone.
It is worth mentioning that Facebook along with Twitter faced massive DoSS attacks lately.
If you have a problem accessing facebook, please let us know via a comment.
I have tested yesterday facebook using Kulacom (WIMAX) and Zain (4G) and it worked fine, the problem seems from Orange. however the service seems back now for Orange customers, I do not know if it was a technical problem from Orange or from Facebook.
