All 3 networking platforms, including Facebook Messenger, weren't loading as of Sunday morning.
Facebook and its subsidiaries Instagram and WhatsApp experienced widespread outages on Sunday for the second time in the past month (and the third time this year), with issues reported starting at around 11am BST and extending until around 2pm.
DownDetector's live outage map showed that users in Europe and Asia were mainly affected.
The website wouldn't refresh, and messages weren't coming through, from roughly 6:30 AM EDT (New York time) to about 9:30 AM.
An email requesting comment about what caused the outage was sent to Facebook. Facebook has more than 1.52 billion daily active, according to the social media network's website.
This weekend, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp all went down for many users, rendering the applications completely unusable for hours.
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. 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. "What is wrong with Facebook", Kularakkhita asked in a tweet from Thailand.
