Facebook acknowledged on Tuesday afternoon the presence of an internal glitch that left some members with their accounts inaccessible.

“We are currently experiencing a technical issue with one of our databases that is resulting in an extended period of maintenance for some users,” a statement e-mailed to CNET News by Facebook spokeswoman Malorie Lucich read. “We are working on a fix now and hope to have this resolved in the next 24 hours.”

The member complaints, according to reader e-mails sent to CNET News and comments posted to recent (unrelated) entries on Facebook’s company blog, detail an issue in which accounts were rendered inaccessible and replaced by alerts that they were down for maintenance.
