    I have 2 internet connections. I use one for autoposting. Since yesterday, anytime I try logging in on fb I get a message on all my browsers saying "facebook.com took too long to respond". I tried with chrome, firefox, internet explorer etc and got the same message every time. Other sites like google, yahoo, bhw are loading properly. I tried using my second internet connection and fb is loading properly. Did fb ban my ip address for my internet connection?

    Did you try clearing the cache and restarting the machine? If you are blocked they would directing you to a page saying you are blocked.

    Open a command prompt and type in ping www.facebook.com and see if you can ping it.
    When it shows the results, it will have an IP address as well.
    If you cannot ping www.facebook.com see if you can ping the ip address.

    Also, try doing ipconfig /flushdns on command prompt as well

    Ok. Any idea how long this temporary block lasts? And what can I do to avoid it in future?

    I use autoposting software to promote my service, that's about it.
