Question about Facebook stoppage...

I was able to log on to Facebook a few hours ago, but now it won't open up for me--in any server. On my PC, I just get a blank page. When I tried it on my phone, I can see my newsfeed for a second and then a notice pops up: "Facebook has stopped."

What does this mean? Is it just me? Did I just suddenly get cut off by FB for some random reason or are others affected?

Has this happened to any of you?

Thanks.

Isn't this a tech issue? This thread should probably go into tech talk.

Does the app need an update?

It was a site-wide crash earlier. Should be fine now. Delete browser cookies and log in again.

How does one "delete browser cookies"?

P.S. I googled it and figured it out. Thanks!
