    Is it a legit microsoft support website?
    I'm betting on it being a virus.
    If so just give it a scan with Malwarebytes anti malware

    yeah. this morning i got hit by a virus that was a fake "antivirus" lol. it made all sites show a internet explorer error. even though i was using chrome.

    malwarebytes fixed it too. try it.

    only facebook is affected though--



    the thing is when i enter facebook.com on the address bar--when it loads up goes to the microsoft support page and the FACEBOOK.COM that i typed on the ad.bar ends up in the microsoft support search.

    hmm.

    Try that, it's the link for the home button. If it redirects you to the Microsoft website, you most likely have some kind of virus.

    Make sure no one hi-jacked your facebook password.
    I had someone do that to me, they posted vulgar stuff to friends of mine, FROM ME!!!
    Just try clearing all your cookies, temp internet stuff, clear ALL your browsing history, then try accessing facebook, see if it'll let you log in.

    Facebook has been having so many problems now and then.
    My account has this problem that whenever I click the chat thing at the bottom the whole browser goes BOOM!
    Crash!
    And on some PC's I can't even log in.

    That's irrelevant here. The OP was asking what happened to facebook, because when he clicked the home button it redirected to another website. He wasn't asking if facebook was down or anything.
