Apparently Facebook over IPv6 is working: https://www.v6.facebook.com

So I'm guessing it's related to their IPv4 infrastructure. Say, a load balancer?

Not anymore. :)

Yep, IPv6 is down for me too.

Working for me, is it giving you an error 503 like the ipv4 ?

I'm getting a 503 on ipv4, but just no route to host on ipv6.

It isn't now, now, the link is redirecting to the same error page!

I think this would be the perfect "push" to get the world to transition to IPv6 :)

Interesting, maybe someone accidentally pressed the 'kill ipv4 interface' button?
