Sunday outages for Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp users

17 April 2019

This outage came nearly exactly a month after Facebook experienced its worst one ever lasting for over 24 hours due to a "server configuration change" according to the company.

Facebook acquired WhatsApp at 2014 and Instagram in 2012. Most of the affected people were in Europe and Asia.

Facebook said it restored services on Sunday (April 14) after some users could not access its social networking site, photo-sharing network Instagram and messaging app WhatsApp. Dean Miller tweeted from NY.

This incident is nowhere near as bad: outage-monitoring service DownDetector listed reports peaking in the tens of thousands on Sunday, while it listed millions of reports during the mid-March outage.

A response from a Facebook representative reads, "Earlier today, some people may have experienced trouble connecting to the family of apps ..." Following the fixation, the social media giant accused a "server configuration change", for the problem and later on apologized after it fix the problem 24 hours later. "The issue has since been resolved; we're sorry for any inconvenience", the apology email read. "Supposedly Facebook, insta and WhatsApp are all down but couldn't care less about the other 2 just want my WhatsApp lol!"

The outage tracking website downdetector.com showed that there are more than 9000 people reporting issues with Facebook.
