Facebook-Inc on Monday said a technical problem disallowed few users from accessing and posting on the social media / network as well as messaging app WhatsApp and Instagram, and it had mostly fixed the issue. People took to Twitter, reporting about the outages across Facebook platforms which were later restored.
According to the Facebook spokesman Jay Nancarrow before today, a networking issue caused some people to have concern accessing or posting to various Facebook services. We rapidly investigated and started restoring access, and we have nearly fixed the issue for everyone. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
The hashtag #FacebookDown was trending on Twitter.
You know why Twitter users never run to Facebook when it’s down? Cause it rarely ever is, because they don’t update their site every 27 minutes!!! Tweeted one user.
Most affected users experienced problems for less than 90 minutes and the problem was not specific to a particular region.
