Every once in a while all marketers have to face their greatest fear – Facebook, their main advertising platform, stops working. Not because of a local error in the browser or cookies but because of a global issue with Facebook servers.
Instead of guessing and trying to figure out whether it’s the fault of your computer/ web browser or it is Facebook itself, you can check it quick and easy.
Facebook Ads, like any self-respecting online platform, provides its customers with a dedicated tool, thanks to which you can check whether Facebook is working properly or there is a problem.
In order to use this tool, all you need to do is to check the real-time updated window below or visit the status.fb.com website. It provides real-time and archived data on all issues with the Ads Manager and related Facebook services.

If you see the sign ✅, everything is fine and there are no issues with the Ad Manager at the moment.
How to check if Facebook is down?
