Facebook, Instagram, What's App

-3 outages this year.

April 14, 2019

It was a sad Sunday for fans of Instagram, Facebook and What's App.  For 3 and a half hours people were unableto access their accounts from these 3 services.  Twitter was buzzing with complaints..

The last time this happened in mid-March, Facebook said a “server configuration change” caused problems that lasted 24 hours.  New York Times noted, even the platform’s bug reporting system became inaccessible.

Later Sunday Facebook reported the issues had been resolved and all 3 services were back online.
