Facebook, Instagram and the widely-used WhatsApp messaging service all broke at the same time. Complete radio silence. The reason is allegedly a configuration error.
Facebook blamed a “faulty configuration change” for the widespread outage which impacted the social media platform, along with Instagram and WhatsApp, for several hours late on last Monday.
The platforms had confirmed on Twitter they were aware of issues and working to resolve them after thousands of people reported outages shortly before 5pm on that day.
Facebook, which has more than two billion monthly users, said it had resolved the “faulty configuration change”. The company said it was not the result of a DDoS attack or other external breach and there was no evidence of malicious activity. But some users blamed the outage on internet provider Cox Communications, while others speculated that it may have been caused by maintenance work introduced after Facebook announced new privacy rules previously.
Fingers were pointed everywhere, but this is not the first time a major tech provider shut down out of seemingly nowhere leaving literally billions of people in the dust.
