Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp went down again for some users.
SAN FRANCISCO – Facebook and its families were inaccessible until Friday afternoon, the second time in a week that the social network has faced widespread issues with its services.
SiteDownDetector.com, a service that relies on user reports to find out if websites are having a problem, shows that all of Facebook’s major products – Instagram, WhatsApp – , Messenger and Facebook’s “Big Blue App” shut down at about 3 p.m. Evening eastern time
The company said in a Twitter post, “We know some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products.” We apologize for the inconvenience. ”
Facebook said Friday’s shutdown had nothing to do with the company’s problems Monday, when apps were shut down globally for more than five hours. This has led to a glitch in people who use apps to run and run their businesses.
