Facebook is reporting all services operational after a prolonged outage that impacted all of the company’s most popular apps.
Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram all went down to some degree at about the same time around 11AM ET on March 13th, affecting users around the world.
It was a stark reminder that three of the world’s most popular internet services are owned and operated by a single giant corporation.
It wasn’t until over 24 hours later that Facebook finally gave the all clear, attributing the downtime to a “server configuration change.” “We’ve now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering.
