Facebook to restore access after outage


CALIFORNIA: Facebook Inc said it was working to restore access to its users after issues with its central software systems triggered an outage in its family of apps including Instagram on the busy Thanksgiving Day holiday. If you were trying to share Thanksgiving photos on Thursday, you may have noticed that both Facebook and Instagram began suffering intermittent outages earlier today. Just like you might feel after your third helping of turkey and stuffing: they were down, but not quite out. Thankfully, Facebook says it’s restored service to its main social network, as well as Instagram. The photo-sharing service made the announcement on Twitter, while a Facebook spokesperson told media, “Earlier today, people may have experienced trouble accessing Facebook’s family of app. The issue has since been resolved, we are back to 100% for everyone and we’re sorry for any inconvenience.” “We quickly investigated, started restoring access, and we’re now monitoring for full recovery,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. Facebook was hit by a major outage earlier in the day, prompting a flurry of tweets on the social media platform. “We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook’s family of apps, including Instagram. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. #InstagramDown,” Instagram said earlier in a tweet. According to outage monitoring website DownDetector, about 8,000 Facebook users were affected in various parts of the world including the United States and Britain. Several users reported issues like not being able to post pictures and videos on their main feeds and an error message saying “Facebook Will Be Back Soon” appeared on log in attempts.–Agencies
