From Facebook: We are aware of ongoing issues with the JS SDK failing to load for sites using RequireJS. We are actively working on a fix and expect it to get pushed shortly. 

10/6/2017, 5:45 PM, UPDATE:

The outage has been identified and is related to an exception from the Facebook JavaScript SDK.  First occurrence of this exception was at 1:04pm EST today. There may have been isolated occurrences prior to this. We have reached out to Facebook and are coordinating with their team.

We are experiencing intermittent outages with Facebook Live streaming via Switcher Studio. If you are streaming today consider using the Facebook event scheduler and RTMP stream key and stream URL - see:
