Slow Facebook – Facebook got an F

Posted on: May 27, 2008

My experience with Facebook has been getting slower lately so I decided I wanted to know why that happened. I used Firefox and Firebug with YSlow extensions in order to determine what the hell was taking so long for my homepage. Here is a screenshot of the YSlow performance analysis.

Looking closer at those results, it appears that what is taking the page so long to load is the number of HTTP requests that are going on:

In addition to the total size of the files being transferred:

Come on Facebook developers, you could do better!

You clearly have no education, as you cannot spell. That’s likley to indicate you are an idiot.

Or, in your language, “your an idiot”
