Facebook goes down; taking WhatsApp, Oculus, and Instagram with it

All Facebook services are currently down.



Read more about Facebook's worldwide outage.

These servers on this site arent exactly doing well. I think I could fly to the country where the servers are held and press the restart button quicker than these threads loading

Sometimes I just love your articles Mark, absolutely love the last sentence:

As today has shown, a single error can take down Facebook's app/service empire, and that shouldn't be the case for one of the world's wealthiest companies.

Seems like the issue is bigger than expected. There have been posts made on Twitter now that Facebook employees, who are the ones who should investigate the issue, can't enter their building offices due to their badges are offline.

Also, not sure if this is legit, since I have no knowledge when it comes to this kind of stuff, but also saw this: https://twitter.com/BenjaminEnfield/...014835213?s=20

Cant be true. Emergency services need access at all times, even if the world goes offline. There always has to be manual alternatives.

They'll have backups, I mean... I genuinely think if Facebook and Instagram were properly down it would be a good thing but they won't be, They'll be back up in either a few hours or a day or so.

This actually was causing delays in me viewing / browsing OC3D, at least from where I am in Canada. I'm guessing somehow ads are tied in with Facebook here.

This is coinciding with the Facebook employee Frances Haugen who only recently, A day or so ago, Became a whistleblower after collecting A LOT of incriminating evidence internally from Facebook over a lengthy period of time.

Me thinks FB are trying to scrub the servers, Zuckerturd must be sweating

While that may be true, like everything else in this, what is basically an obligation in terms of the world, in reality it's a different story.

Emergency services needs access at all times, everywhere basically. I can not tell you how many places lack on this point. Even people are parking their cars on the actual emergency roads and hence blocking the emergency services of ever getting through.

Hmm, interesting... Did not know about this, but seems like a valid point you've got there.
