Question about Facebook Social Network
First, if you're ever unsure if a website is down or it's your computer, you might want to try using http://isitup.org/. Is it up basically allows you to figure out if "facebook.com" works for other people.
If it does, and you still cannot access it, you might want to try pinging facebook to see if their server can connect to your computer. When you ping another computer, you basically say "can you hear me?" and, if the other computer receives the request, it responds "yes I can." To ping facebook, click on start, then run and type "cmd" then hit enter. You should get a DOS prompt (a big black window). At the prompt, type 'ping www.facebook.com' without the single quotes. If your computer can connect to the facebook server, you will see a time response (usually milliseconds). If your computer cannot connect to the facebook server, you will see an error of "request timed out." This means it took too long for facebook to respond to your computer and something is blocking the connection, most likely a firewall.
If your computer responds to the ping request ok, then you most likely need to clear your cookies and cache in your internet browser. Click here to find instructions on how to clear cookies and cache for most major web browsers. http://www.ehow.com/how_6135104_clear-browser_s-cookies.html
