Global Havoc as Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp Face a Breakdown

Facebook down for some users

Exactly a month after Facebook and its family of apps suffered its longest, nearly 24 hours, worldwide outage, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook users from around the world were again complaining that the apps were not working properly.

However, Facebook did not specify the cause or scope of the outages.

The last time this happened in mid-March, Facebook blamed a "server configuration change" that resulted in an unprecedented, cascading series of issues persisting for over 24 hours. As the New York Times noted, even the platform's bug reporting system became inaccessible, a black eye for a company that (at least in theory) is never supposed to go down.

The downtime was from 11:30 to 14:50 BST, before Facebook was able to resolve the connection issues.

It seems as the outage affected people in the States, Europe, as well as Asia.

Downdetector.com reported that there were over 12,000 reports of issues while Facebook was at its peak. The breakdown tracking and checking site also demonstrated that at the crest on Sunday, there were in excess of 3,000 occurrences of individuals announcing issues with WhatsApp and more than 7,000 with Instagram.

DownDetector.com, a website which tracks online service outages, lists tens of thousands of reports from users confirming the sites are down in their area.

"While you won't be able to exchange money with friends and family, you'll still be able to complete other transactions through Facebook, such as making donations to charitable organisations".
